8 AGLC Bibliographies

An AGLC bibliography appears at the end of a document and should include all consulted sources. Refer to AGLC rule 1.13 for information on how to adapt footnote rules to suit bibliography format. This generally involves the following adjustments, as relevant:

  • inverting the first listed author’s names, and separating these with a comma
  • omitting pinpoint references
  • removing full stops at the end of citations.

Organise sources alphabetically beneath the following headings, although these categories may be adjusted as appropriate:

  • Articles/Books/Reports
  • Cases
  • Legislation
  • Treaties
  • Other.
