MAKE A BIBLIOGRAPHY
Part of the BHS Library “Information You Will Really Use” Series!

WHY DO I HAVE TO MAKE A
BIBLIOGRAPHY???
Copyright Laws!
Whenever you use someone’s work that is not your own you have to give the
author/artist credit.
Music
TV
Books
Papers
Websites
Newspapers
BIBME.ORG
I recommend you register for bibme. You will have to give an email address, but it is free.
When you find a
website you are using
information from, make
sure you add it to your
Bibliography in BibMe.
To add it to
BibMe highlight
the URL.
Next, right click
on it and Copy
it.
• TIP:
• You can keep BibMe open and minimized at the bottom of the screen and
add each website as you go. Just be careful to not close the window until
you have saved your work!
OR
• You can open a Word Document and copy and paste any URL’s you are
using into a word document and then go back and add the ones you used
to BibMe later.
• REMEMBER: You have to list all the sites you used in your Bibliography!!
