In some style guides, though, these terms are used to differentiate between different types of lists of source works. Bibliography is often used to indicate that the list is a comprehensive or in-depth survey of works available on a particular subject or research area, with annotations, or, a list of all materials that have been consulted during the course of conducting research for a project or a paper, including those not actually cited in the text.
A Reference List or a List of Works Cited, on the other hand, usually includes only those works actually referenced in a paper or manuscript.
Although it is quite common in academic writing to see a listing of the sources cited for a paper titled "Bibliography," Citation, in order to distinguish between different functions of the program, uses the more strict definition of these terms.
If you generate a Bibliography, using Citation, you will write citations for all the source works in a datafile.
If you generate a Reference List, using Citation, you will write citations for the source works actually cited in a paper.
