              GUIDELINES FOR DOCUMENTING SOURCES
            PRELIMINARY BIBLIOGRAPHY/WORKS CITED PAGE
Step 1           Identify the type of source you are using (e.g. a book source, a periodical source,
                 a database source, an Internet source, or another type of source that would fall
                 under the miscellaneous category).

Step 2           Identify the correct format (e.g. a book with two authors, an article from an online
                 subscription database, a portion of a website, a book with an editor).

Step 3           Select the proper example to help you determine what information is required.

Step 4           Write the citation using proper punctuation (e.g. periods, commas, underlining,
                 colons, quotation marks) and style (e.g. spacing, indentation, dates). Use the
                 examples provided as a guideline.

Step 5           If a required piece of information cannot be found, continue the citation with the
                 next available piece of information.
