• The term ‘bibliography’ is used in two ways. First, it is used to describe a reading list – one you have been given, or that you draw up for yourself listing the things you might decide to read or look at in the course of your research.

    Second, in some subjects, mostly Arts and Humanities, it is used to refer to the list of sources and materials you actually use and refer to in your writing. (In other subjects these are ‘references’). The links below refer you to guides to the referencing styles used in some of these subjects in Brookes.
