Works Cited vs. Bibliography

bibliography is a list of sources that relate to the content in a research paper or project. You can find examples of bibliographies in the final pages of some nonfiction books. Authors sometimes include a list of sources for further or additional reading. This additional reading list is a bibliography.

works cited page is a list of sources that are included in the body of a research paper or project. When a quote or piece of information is added into a project, the writer includes the in-text citation or parenthetical citation. This is the last page of an MLA research paper.
