Two instances in which a source of a text is cited in the writer's document but is not listed on the reference page, or the Works Cited page as it is also known, are allusions to the Bible or Qur'an or Talmud and allusions to classical works. The reason for the omission of the references to these works on the reference pages is a fairly obvious one: These works can easily be attained and need no further identification.

It is important to note, however, that on the document page in which a reference is made to the Bible, the writer should also include which version of the Bible he/she is using. It is not necessary to specify anything regarding a classical work that is referenced since there should be no textual differences as there are with different Bibles such as the King James version versus the Confraternity Bible.
