This manual details the procedures and guidelines that the staff of the Non-Formal Education (NFE) Information Center use in preparing citations and annotations for the "The NFE Exchange" and an NFE series of annotated bibliographies. Following a brief description of the purpose of an NFE bibliography, sample basic formats are provided for the citation of a book, pamphlet, or report, and the citation of an article or section from a larger publication. Variations from the basic formats are then presented, with examples from NFE bibliographies. Author, periodical title, article, chapter, and other variations are covered, as well as the addition of language information and other information of value. Guidelines for and examples of the composition of annotations are also provided, covering general points to remember, the general format, and formats for specific types of documents, including project reports and case studies, theoretical documents, theoretical discussions with specific examples of activities, special issues and single articles in journals and newsletters, a number of articles from one journal or newsletter, seminar and conference reports, collections of papers, manuals and handbooks, bibliographies, and directories or surveys of programs.
