If I have to place my appendix after the works-cited list, where should the works I cite in the appendix be listed?

It is not standard to place an appendix after a works-cited list, but if you need to do so, and the appendix cites many sources, create a separate works-cited list. If you cite only a few sources, provide full publication information for each source in endnotes or, if the appendix is composed exclusively of images or figures, in captions. For details on how to style the information, see our post on documenting a source parenthetically and in captions. Sources in the notes may be styled in the same way.
