A list of references contains only those sources you have actually referenced in your assignment, whereas a bibliography is a list of all sources you have used, including those you have read but not cited in your writing. If you are using a numeric referencing system, you will need a list of references arranged in the order you have used them in your writing, and also a bibliography that lists all sources alphabetically by author surname. Check your course style manual and be aware that the terms ‘List of references’ and ‘Bibliography’ are sometimes used interchangeably.
