Creating A Proper Bibliography

Any time reports or research papers are created, it is necessary to cite the sources of information from which the material was gathered. A list of the works cited is called a bibliography and it is the student's responsibility to complete one according to the following directions.  Examples of different types of sources are listed below. Please utilize this format only.  SUHSD approved bibliography format for printed and electronic sources may be found here.

Before typing your final bibliography, all entries are to be alphabetized by the first word in each type of entry. You make one combined list, do not break your bibliography into groups.
