The Effects of Breakfast on Learning – Annotated Bibliography
¨A bibliography is a list of sources (books, journals, Web sites, periodicals, etc.) you used for researching a topic. Bibliographies are sometimes called “References” or “Works Cited” depending on the style format you are using. A bibliography usually just includes the bibliographic information (i.e., the author, title, publisher, etc.).
