  • The following is an example of how to format your bibliography/works cited page. All entries should be alphabetized by author’s last name. If there is no author to alphabetize, use the name of the editor. If there is no editor, alphabetize by ARTICLE/PAGE TITLE or WEBSITE TITLE. You must have all periods, commas, quotation marks, etc… EXACTLY as they appear.
