Citing Sources: Writing a Bibliography
What’s a bibliography?
It’s a list of all the books, articles, websites, interviews or movies that you used to create your project or report.
Why do I need a bibliography?
It’s important to give credit to the people whose work you used for your report. And it gives you, your teacher and anyone else who reads your report a chance to refer to those sources for more information.
How do I write a bibliography?
There are different ways you can do this and your teacher will tell you which they prefer (if they haven’t, just ask them).
