MLA Citation Style
WHAT is a WORKS CITED list?
When you use information that you found in a book, a newspaper article or on
a web site or database, you must give credit to the author(s) for the ideas.
HOW important is the WORKS CITED list?
Citing your sources in a bibliography/works cited page shows respect for
other people's intellectual property. Intellectual property is the basic
right of all people to own their own thoughts and ideas.
HOW do I create a WORKS CITED list?
Every source (book, magazine, encyclopedia, newspaper, web site, database)
has information that identifies it as being different from every other
source. That includes the author's name, the title, page numbers, and other
similar details.IMPORTANT RULES TO REMEMBER Modern Language Association style
