Mediagraphy

The mediagraphy (or bibliography) draws up, on a separate page, the list of documents (books, magazines, videos, etc.) that have been consulted and cited (referenced by a footnote) to carry out the work. There are several models for presenting bibliographic references. In any case, you must respect the form adopted by the Cégep Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, unless otherwise indicated by your teacher. You must present your sources in alphabetical order of the NAME of the authors or the title if there is no author.

In general, here is how we proceed.

GENERAL INFORMATIONS

It is necessary to treat the information as it is and not according to its support. For example, no PDF reference is required.

When the work is without a place mentioned, one indicates: s.l.

When the work has no publication date, indicate: s.d.

When the work is without an author mentioned, one indicates: s.a.

  • If there are two or three authors, indicate the first and last names of the first, the first and last names of the second, and the first and last names of the third.
  • If there are more than three authors, indicate the first and last name of the first author, followed by “et al. ” (And the others).
  • If there are several authors who are under the direction of a director, coordinator or publisher, the name of the director, coordinator or publisher followed by “dir., Coord. or ed. “

The rules of presentation must be adapted to the type of document and it is normal that we do not know what to do anymore. To help you, here is a table that presents an example for each type of document. If, despite everything, you do not really know how to do it, do not hesitate to call on the library staff or your teacher.

BIBLIOGRAPHIC DESCRIPTIONS

In a mediagraphy, the sources consulted are listed in alphabetical order of authors. If there is no author, the title of the document is used to insert it in alphabetical order at the mediagraphy. In a handwritten work, underlining replaces italics.

This logical order of presentation of the types of works is suggested (in funnel):

  • Reference book;
  • General work;
  • Monograph;
  • Periodical;
  • Other types of documents used, as desired.

If you have any questions, consult your teacher or library staff.
