Sample bibliography entries are citation examples that show the proper way to format bibliographies for publication. Sample academic bibliographies show the method of citation that specific style guides require, including the American Psychological Association, Modern Language Association or Chicago Manual of Style.
Purdue University's Online Writing Lab at Owl.English.Purdue.edu provides several resources for academic writers. It offers sample bibliographies in each of the major academic style guides, and it provides help in formatting in-text citations, footnotes and works-cited lists. In addition, the Online Writing Lab gives guidance in developing writing topics, finding and evaluating research sources, and formatting papers for academic use.
