How to Write a Works Cited

Need help writing a Works Cited for your research paper? Confused about how it differs from a Bibliography?

A Works Cited and a Bibliography are NOT the same. A Bibliography is a list of ALL sources you consulted, including those you did not end up referencing in your paper. A Works Cited is a list of only the sources you reference in your paper. Usually, your instructor will request that you submit a Works Cited with your research.

The attached document provides instructions on how to properly format a Works Cited page along with specific examples.
