Bibliography - Songs in Book Form

The heading should appear in the upper right hand corner of the first page and should include the following:

Your Course Number (MUSC448 or MUSC548)
Bibliography - Songs in Book Form
Your name

Do not include a cover sheet.

Note: A song in book form is a single song illustrated line by line or verse by verse to appear as a story book. The song should be included in the back of the book in the form of a piece of music.

Text Format: Use "Word." Canvas doesn't like some of the other software as well, and you want to be sure that your work is recognized.

10 or 12 point type, 1" margins, in a standard font (such as Ariel, Helvetica, Times New Roman). See below for the model for the entries. (Do not include these examples in your bibliography.)

8-10 entries (1 full page maximum)


Bibliography in specialized format: (NOTE: This is not a scholarly format, but it will make the final product easier for you to use.)

"Song Title." Song Source or Author. Illustrator. followed by the normal publisher and date information. This specialized format simply reverses the normal author/title sequence. (Examples at the bottom of this page.)

No annotations, please, but do identify the source where you found the book. (Longwood Library, etc.)

Remember that bibliographic lists are in alphabetical order.
