CREATING A WORKING BIBLIOGRAPHY
As you start to do your research, it is a very good idea to keep track of the sources that you are
using. If you write down all of the information you might need as soon as you see that you will
be using the book or article, you will save yourself a lot of difficulty later on. The MLA
Handbook (pp. 139-235) will tell you the specific format to use for each of your resources, but
you can use the following lists to get an idea of the information you should keep for each source:
BOOK:
Author’s full name: last name first (write down all names if there are more than
one author)
Full title (including any subtitle)
Editor or translator (if there is one) record the name and whether he/she is an
editor or translator
Edition (if the book is a second or later edition)
Number of the volume and the total number of volumes (if the book is part of a
multivolume set)
Series name (if the book is part of a series)
City of publication (write down only the first city if several are listed)
Publisher
Year of publication
ARTICLE IN A SCHOLARLY JOURNAL:
Author’s name
Title of the article
Title of the journal
Volume number (and issue number, if needed)
Year of publication
Inclusive page numbers of the article (for example: 162 - 71)
NEWSPAPER OR MAGAZINE ARTICLE:
Author’s name
Title of the article
Title of the periodical
Volume number (and issue number, if needed)
Date of publication
Inclusive page numbers of the article (for example: 162 - 71) or the actual page
numbers the article covers (for example: 13-15, 16, 22, 29). (Record all
page numbers at this stage, although in your Works Cited section you may be
able to use a shortcut.)
NOTE: For an Internet source, include the complete pathname and date of access.
