Bibliography
A Bibliography is a list of all the information you used in creating your assignment. Include all sources of information, even if you didn't cite or quote them within the assignment.

Bibliographies and Reference Lists should be at the end of the assignment on a separate page and are arranged alphabetically by the author’s surname or the name of the organisation if there is no specific author, which is the case with many websites.
