What is a Bibliography?

A Bibliography is an alphabetical list of sources that you consulted when you wrote your term project, essay, research paper, or assignment.  The sources that you consulted may have expanded your knowledge of the topic, but you may not have used them beyond that.

In contrast, a Works Cited page is an alphabetical list of sources that you cited, (quoted, summarized, or paraphrased), when you wrote your term project, essay, research paper, or assignment.

The Bibliography page is headed Bibliography; the Works Cited page is headed Works Cited, but the citation formats and page setups are the same.
