A bibliography has two slightly different meanings:

  1. A list of works (such as books and articles) written on a particular subject or by a particular author. In terms of information sources, bibliographies are tertiary information sources
  2. A list of all of the sources you have looked at (whether you referenced them or not) in the process of researching your essay or coursework. This is not the same as a reference list, as that contains all of the sources that you refer to in your work.

Your teacher may ask you to include a bibliography as well as a reference list in your work, but will probably just require a reference list
