How to Alphabetize a Bibliography With Multiple Sources

Save

When doing research or writing a paper, a bibliography is important to show what books, articles, websites or encyclopedias were used as sources for the paper or item being written. A bibliography should be alphabetized by author, last name first. If there is no author, use the title.

  • Double-space between entries. Do not number each entry.

  • The first line of each entry should not be indented. The remaining lines should.

  • End each entry with a period.

  • Underline the titles of books, magazines and encyclopedias.

  • Use quotes around the titles of articles in magazines and encyclopedias.

Tips & Warnings

  • Entries for books should be written as: author (last name, first name), title of book, city of publication, publisher's name, year of publication.
  • For magazines, only the author, article title, magazine title, date of publication and page the article is on is needed.
  • For encyclopedias, the author, article title, encyclopedia title, edition and year are needed.
  • For a website, the author, title, date created or last revised, sponsoring or associated institution, date website was viewed and website address.
