Bibliography 1. The list of sources used in the paper should appear at the end of the paper. 2. It should begin on a new page separate from the text of the essay. 3. In Chicago Citation Style, we name the list of sources ‘Bibliography’. 4. The word ‘Bibliography’ should be centered at the top of the page (NOT bolded, not underlined, not italicized, not in quotation marks). 5. The first line of each entry should be flush left. All lines after the first line of each entry in the list should be indented one-half inch from the left margin (hanging indentation). 6. There should be two blank lines between “Bibliography” and the first entry. 7. There should be one blank line between remaining entries. 8. Lines within the bibliography entries should be singled-spaced internally; however, you should leave an extra line space between the bibliographic entries. 9. Entries should be arranged in the alphabetical order according to the first word in each entry. As a rule, it is the author’s last name. If no author or editor is listed, the title or keyword by which the reader would search for the source may be used instead. 10. The author’s name is inverted in the bibliography. Place the last name first and separate the last name and first name with a comma. 11. Use “and,” not an ampersand, “&,” for multi-author entries. 12. The 3-em dash (—) should be used to replace authors or editors’ names who hold multiple, successive entries in a bibliography. 13. As a rule, the year of publication is mentioned at the end of the entry. 14. In the Bibliography, all major elements are separated by periods (whereas in notes, all major elements are usually separated by commas). 15. In Bibliography, in the text of the paper and in the notes, titles of books and journals are italicized. Titles of articles, poems, chapters, poems, etc. are placed in quotation marks. 16. The title case is used for all the titles in the Bibliography.
