What's a Bibliography?  

A bibliography is a list of all the sources ( also called ‘references’ or 'citations') you used to create a report. 

List your sources alphabetically by author or if no author by the title of the website. 

What does a Bibliography look like?  


  • Your Bibliography should have a heading, Bibliography.
  • List sources in alphabetical order by author OR if no author by the title of the website.
  • DO NOT bullet or number list your references.


Below, is an example of bibliography created using  the school's Citemaker for a research report on child labour .
