Bibliography Practice

Write a Bibliography

Format for a book:
Author’s last name, author’s first name. Title. City of publication: Publisher, copyright date.

Procedure:
1. Read the 5 entries below.  Underline the last name in each entry.  Number the entries so that the last names are in alphabetical order.

2. Each entry is mixed up.  Write each entry in the correct format, making sure that the authors are listed in alphabetical order. (Note that if you have to go to a second line, you must start under the third letter of the first line. Every subsequent line also starts under the third letter in the first line.  You will make a shape opposite to that of a paragraph: instead of indenting, ‘outdent’.)
