Most important, you will start seeing why this initially confusing style may have been chosen.  

Learning outcomes:  

  • differentiate between the Author-Date and Notes-Bibliography formats;  
  • compare and contrast the roles of the Notes to the role of the Bibliography;  
  • prepare the first and subsequent in-text citations using both formats;  
  • prepare a brief bibliography.
