The library has also created FORMS to help you with your citations. Ask for them at the library, or download copies from the file library below.
Below are some citation basics, but be sure to use the MLA Citation Guide, Purdue OWL and EasyBib links above for more details.
Begin the works cited page on a new page following your paper, but continue the same pagination. Double space the entire list.
Center the title, Works Cited, an inch from the top of the page. Double space between the title and the first entry.
Entries are arranged alphabetically by the author's last name or when there is no author, by title.
New entries begin at the left margin with subsequent lines for the same entry indented one half inch or five typed spaces. Use the margins options on your word processor to create the hanging indent. Don’t use tabs.
Electronic Resources Citations Not every web page will provide all of the information below, but collect as much as possible both for your citations and for your research notes:
Author and/or editor names (if available)
Article name in quotation marks (if applicable)
Title of the website, project, or book in italics.
Any version numbers available, including revisions, posting dates, volumes, or issue numbers.
Publisher information, including the publisher name and publishing date. (Use n.p. if there is no publisher given, and n.d. if no date is given.)
Name of database in italics (if applicable)
Date you accessed the material, in the format dd Mon. yyyy.
URL, up to at least the first extension. (No longer required in MLA, but ask your teacher his/her preference).
