    • Sample New Page To see what that looks like, click on "edit" for this page and look at the wiki markup.
  • Go to that new page and start adding content!

Suggestions for New Bibliographies

  • Use annotations. They add scholarly value!
  • Include links to WorldCat records for books, and include links to reviews, especially open-access ones (BMCR, AJA, etc.).
  • Include DOI links for articles, if possible, or other stable urls.
  • Arrange the bibliography using sections, for ease of navigation.
