A bibliography is an alphabetical list of everything you used to research and in preparing a paper or project. It contains all of the works that you actually “used” in your paper or presentation, as well as a list of other books or sources you read but didn't directly use in your project.

An annotated bibliography is a bibliography that also includes a brief summary of the content, quality, and usefulness of the source.

A works cited page lists only works actually “used” in your paper or presentation. If your research project or multimedia presentation does not use a source, then it should not be in your works cited page.

A works consulted page would be paired with a works cited page to list additional resources that were used as reference materials, but were not actually “used” in the research paper or multimedia presentation.

Here is a good guide for using citations within a paper...

A bibliographic citation is a reference to a book, article, web page, or other published item. Citations of both types should supply sufficient detail to identify the item uniquely.[1] Different citation systems and styles are used in scientific citation, legal citation, prior art, and the humanities.

A citation number, used in some systems, is a number or symbol added inline and usually in superscript, to refer readers to a footnote or endnote that cites the source. In other citation systems, an inline parenthetical reference is used rather than a citation number, with limited information such as the author's last name, year of publication, and page number referenced; a full identification of the source will then appear in an appended bibliography.
