General Use

Creating Bibliographies and Works Cited style sheets

A Bibliography is a list of all works that you consulted in the course of creating your project. A Works Cited Page is a list of all the works that you actually refer to in your project.  Sometimes the list is the same, but usually the Bibliography is longer.  The format for both is exactly the same, unless your teacher instructs you otherwise.


Choose the correct format:

NoodleTools- creating your bibliography in either APA (usually used in Science classes) or MLA (used with English and Social Studies classes). Ask the media center staff for information about your username/password.

College Libraries

Many local college libraries are good sources of information. Students may visit the libraries to use their print materials. Montgomery College allows students with proper identification to borrow print materials. The school websites also have good web directories for homework help.
