Creating Electronic Bibliographies

Getting Started

Research resources are the materials (print, electronic and multimedia) you consult when writing papers.  This library guide will assist you in locating the various types of dance materials available in the Kenyon Library or through one of our consortial library partners.  Print and electronic reference tools will include the following information:

  • Book citations (also known as monographs) include the author or editor's name(s), book title, place of publication, publisher, and date of publication.
  • Journal article citations (also known as periodicals or serials) include the author's name(s), article title, journal title, volume number, day/month/year of publication, and page numbers.  Both print and electronic indexes include this information, even if the article is available via an electronic link.
  • Internet sources include full title of the webpage and the author.  You must include the complete URL link and the date you accessed the resource on your bibliography.  Follow an evaluative practice using internet resources to be sure the information is of a quality that meets academic standards.
  • Multimedia citations include title, director/conductor, publisher, date.

Kenyon students may access the RefWorks software to use in conjunction with their research and writing projects.  Simply put, RefWorks allows you to import data and organize lists of citations from a wide variety of databases.  A tutorial and guide are available once you create your account.  The company also provides Webinars to better understand the software.  Kenyon now has access to Flow, software similar to Zotero, which allows you to capture PDF files as well as bibliographic information and websites.
