What is a bibliography?
A bibliography is an alphabetical listing of ALL of the media items that were actually used in the research, the creative thinking, and the creation, or actual writing of each History Day project. Important data (author’s name, title, publisher, date, pages, Web site address, etc.) for each source is listed in a predetermined order (use Turabian or MLA bibliographical format). The student must be alert to gather all of the required bibliographical data at the time that the research is conducted, so that an accurate reference can be made to each. Otherwise, important bibliographical data might be missing. Special attention must be paid to bibliographical entries for sources accessed on the Internet. Students should follow the appropriate Turabian or MLA format for this unique type of bibliographical entry.
