Format for Bibliography

When typing out the good copy of your bibliography remember these points:

  • Your list of citations is organized alphabetically by author’s last name.  If there is no author, use the title (of book, article, or website).
  • All citations must be double-spaced.  If your citation runs longer than one line, then indent the second line and all following lines.
  • If there is more than one city of publication listed, use the first one; also you do not need to put in words like “Company”, “Inc.,” and “Ltd.”
  • Book and website titles should be underlined or italicized.
  • The title at the top should be Works Consulted or Bibliography.
