A Reference List  includes only the resources that have been used as references in your assignment. It relates to the actual pieces of information you have used and is normally arranged in alphabetical order by author.

A Bibliography is similar to a Reference list, but will also include resources you have read but not used as actual references in your assignment.  A Bibliography is also normally arranged in alphabetical order by author.

Your teacher will provide you with information about their requirements relating to referencing your assignments.

For more information about reference lists and bibliographies - check out the Library's guide: Research Help - Referencing
