The first lesson we studied on listing information in a bibliography was based on the bibliography format of a particluar college. In this lesson, we will focus on the standard format for listing bibliography.

Bibliography Information Review

Do you remember what a bibliography is? Well just in case you don’t, we are going to do a little review on this topic.

A bibliography is a list of the sources you use to help you write your research paper or essay.The reason you must create a bibliography is to give credit to the authors of the research materials you use to help you write your paper and to prove that your paper is not plagiarized.

Examples of listing books by a single author:

Author’s Last name, First name, Title of Book, City of publication: Publisher, ©year

©year=copyright year

List the bibliography of one book written by a single author in each category of the Dewey Decimal System

E.g. 000
Thornton, Sarah, Seven Days in the Art World, New York, NY: W. W. Norton & Co. November 2008

DiCamillo, Kate, The Tale of Despereaux, Massachusetts: Candlewick Press, April 2006

You can use books you have at home, books in the library and you can also search for books online. A good place is AMAZON. Here is the web address:

We will walk through the steps for searching Amazon in class.
