1 Bibliographies and Works Cited Lists

2 What’s the Difference? A Bibliography lists all the sources consulted in research for a specific essay. A Preliminary Bibliography or Working Bibliography lists all the sources the writer thinks s/he will be using in the essay A Works Cited lists all the works actually cited in the text of the essay. Both a Bibliography and Works Cited list are formatted in the same way.

3 Overall Format The title -- Bibliography or Works Cited -- is centered at the top of the page. It is not underlined, italicized or quoted. It should be the same font size as the rest of the citations. The citation list is double-spaced throughout. The citation list is alphabetized. If there is no author, the citation begins with the title of the work – quoted if an article or poem, underlined or italicized if a book. The first line of each citation is at the margin; subsequent lines should be indented about ten spaces.
