A bibliography, which is different from a reference list, is a list of works that are related to your subject or publication but not cited, either by author or by number, in the text. Alphabetize works in bibliographies according to the last name of the first author. You may use NREL's reference style in listing the works if you don't have other guidelines (e.g., from a journal). Some bibliographies are titled "For Further Reading." Compile your in-text citations of literature and other sources in a list of references.
