Creating an Alphabetical Works Cited Page
Create the list of sources.
A bibliography is an alphabetical list of sources referenced in a paper. Whereas the text of
the research paper contains brief references to the source (the citations), the bibliography
lists all publication information about the source. Documentation styles differ signii cantly
in their guidelines for preparing a bibliography. Each style identii es formats for various
sources, including books, magazines, pamphlets, newspapers, Web sites, television programs,
paintings, maps, advertisements, letters, memos, and much more. You can i nd information
about various styles and their guidelines in printed style guides and on the Web.
To Page Break Manually
The works cited are to be displayed on a separate numbered page. Thus, you must insert a manual page break
following the body of the research paper so that the list of sources is displayed on a separate page. A manual page
break , or hard page break , is one that you force into the document at a specii c location.
Word never moves or adjusts manual page breaks. Word, however, does adjust any automatic page breaks that
follow a manual page break. Word inserts manual page breaks immediately above or to the left of the location of the
insertion point. The following step inserts a manual page break after the text of the research paper.
Verify that the insertion point is
positioned at the end of the text
of the research paper, as shown in
Figure 2–51 on the previous page.

To Apply a Style
The works cited title is to be centered between the margins of the paper. If you simply issue the Center
command, the title will not be centered properly. Instead, it will be one-half inch to the right of the center point
because earlier you set the i rst-line indent for paragraphs to one-half inch.
