    Post Works Cited

    Hii,

    These are two references. What does "Print" mean. Is it deletable.

    Ball, David. George Orwell's Animal Farm. Woodbury, N.Y: Barron's, 1984. Print.

    Bazin, André. Qu'est-ce Que Le Cinéma?Paris: Ed. du Cerf, 1994. Print.



    Thank you in Advance.

    Could this be an instruction to print out a list that you have mistakenly thought to be part of the reference?

    I found them in this website:

    Adaptation studies : new approaches (Book, 2010) [WorldCat.org]

    All references I find in that website include "Print".

    Could it be the year the book/edition was printed? Normally this is left off and the year will do, which you already have in your list When referencing for university I've never put 'print' in the reference.

    Try to look for any book in the website I've already posted and see its "citation".

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****


    (1) I went to your link, but I was not smart enough to find any

    references ending with the word "print."

    (2) I asked "Professor Google," and I may (repeat: MAY) have

    found the answer:

    (a) Apparently, today in this world with the Internet, some

    professors now require their students to write "print" if the

    reference came from a "real" book (as we old people say)

    -- not from the Web.

    (i) Here is what one student wrote:

    "My professor is asking [me] to put at the end of each

    bibliography [sic] reference the word 'print.' "


    (ii) Here are two examples I found at a website that showed a reference

    for a printed book and for an electronic source:


    Smith, John. "BibMe." Web Application Encyclopedia. 8th edition. Vol 15. 2009. 21-33. Print. [I am not sure if I copied all the periods correctly, but it gives you the idea.]

    Smith, John. "BibMe." Web Application Encyclopedia. 8th ed. 2009. Web Application Encyclopedia ONLINE. Web. 21 Feb. 2009.



    Sincerely,


    James

    You are not the only one.

    That's something I have learnt today, thank you.

    Thank you TheParser
    In fact the majority of my sources were taken from "google book", and all of them have "Print" after the year of publication.
