What is a bibliography? 

It’s an alphabetical list of the resources (websites, articles, books, etc.) you used for your research.  Each item in the list is called a citation.

Why do I need one?

 You must credit other people’s work! If you are borrowing ideas, images, or wording from others, you must give credit to them, otherwise you are plagiarizing.

How do I make one?  

Use Cite This For Me to format your bibliography.
