To Create the Bibliographical List
While typing the research paper, you created several citations and their sources. Word can format the list of
sources and alphabetize them in a bibliographical list , saving you time looking up style guidelines. That is, Word
will create a bibliographical list with each element of the source placed in its correct position with proper
formatting and punctuation, according to the specifi ed style. For example, in this research paper, the book source will list,
in this order, the author name(s), book title, publisher city, publishing company name, and publication year with the
book title underlined and the correct punctuation between each element according to the MLA style. The following
steps create a MLA formatted bibliographical list from the sources previously entered.
