2  Information Needed:  Author’s name Last name followed by first name with a period at the end. For Ex: Fussell, Laura.  Title of Book Italicize the Title and put a period at the end. Find the exact title on title page, not book cover. Many books contain a subtitle. For Ex: Writing: A Guide for College and Beyond.  Publication Information The place (usually the city) where it was published followed by a colon. The name of the publisher followed by a comma. Use abbreviations for common words, such as P for Press, UP for University Press, or U of Texas P for University of Texas Press, etc. The date of the publication followed by a period. The medium (print or online)of publication followed by a period. For example: New York: New York UP, Print. Final Result: Fussell, Laura. Writing: A Guide for College and Beyond. New York: New York UP, Print.

3  Two or Three authors  After the first author’s name, the following authors are listed with first names first, and commas separating the authors, with the word and before the last one listed. For example: Fussell, Laura, and Amanda Cosgrove. Fussell, Laura, Amanda Cosgrove, and Sarah Rogers.  Four or More Authors  You can either list all of authors in the same way previously shown above, or the phrase “et al.” can appear after the first author. However, whichever way you choose much match what is done in-text. For Example: Fussell, Laura et al.  Unknown Author  Begin with the title. For Example: The Baseball Encyclopedia. 10th ed.  Group or Organization  Treat the group as the author of the work. For example: United Nations. The Charter of the United Nations: A Commentary.

4  If there is an author and an editor or translator, the editor’s/translator’s name goes after the title, with “Ed.” or “Trans.” followed by the editor’s name. For example:  Fussell, Laura. Confessions of a Teaching Assistant Drama Queen. Ed. Anthony Atkins.  If there is no author, but an editor, use the editor’s name in place of the author’s name, followed by a comma and “ed.” For example:  Atkins, Anthony, ed.

5 Items Needed: Author and/or editor’s name. Title of article. Use the exact title Put the title in quotation marks. For Example:  “Arts and Crafts for the Digital Age.” If the title has a book title in it, italicize the book title within the quotations. For example:  “Damsel in Distress: Bella’s Antifeminist Role in Twilight.” If the title has quotations in it, use single quotes inside the quotation marks. For example:  “‘Call Me Ishmael’: Melville’s Multiple-Personalities.” Capitalize the first word, and all other words except articles, prepositions, or coordinating conjunctions. Publication Information. Name of the journal italicized Volume Number followed by a period, than the issue number, with the year publication in parentheses followed by a colon, then the page numbers. For Example:  “Damsel in Distress: Bella’s Antifeminist Role in Twilight.” PMLA 26.2 (2009): Medium of publication followed by a period. (In this case, Print.) Final Result: Fussell, Laura. “Damsel in Distress: Bella’s Antifeminist Role in Twilight.” PMLA 26.2 (2009): Print.

6  Same as print articles with a few variations.  After the page numbers, instead of the word “print,” write the name of the database used to find the article in italics. Then, follow that with the medium (Web.) and the date of access. For example: Fussell, Laura. “Damsel in Distress: Bella’s Antifeminist Role in Twilight.” PMLA 26.2 (2009): Academic Search Premier. Web. 1 June 2009.

7  Things Needed:  Author followed by a period.  Title of article in quotations with a period.  Name of newspaper italicized  Date it was Printed followed by a comma.  Edition with a period and colon then the page number with a period.  Medium followed by a period. Final Result: Fussell, Laura. “The Ins and Outs of MLA Citation.” New York Times 1 June 2009, final ed.: A3. Print.

8  Same as the print version, with a few variations.  After you have listed the italicized newspaper, list the publisher followed by a comma.  After the comma, put the date that the article was published followed by a period.  Then put the medium of publication (Web.) followed by a period.  Then list the date that the article was accessed online followed by a period. Final Result: Fussell, Laura. “The Ins and Outs of MLA Citation.” New York Times. New York Times, 22 Jan Web. 1 June 2009.

9  Things you need:  Author’s name (if there is no other, begin the entry with the article name.) An exception is when using a government publication on the web. If you cannot locate an author, put the name of the government agency in place of the author’s name, and then follow it with the article’s name.  Title of work in quotations with a period and then the title of the overall website italicized followed by a period.  Name of the publisher (if there is no publisher, put N.p.)followed by a comma.  After the comma, put the date that the article was published (if there is no date, put n.d.) followed by a period.  Then, provide the medium of access (Web.) followed by a period, the date you accessed the article, followed by a period. Final Result: Farrar, Lara. “Snails Inspire Design for State-of-the-Art Robots.” CNN.com. Cable News Network, 4 July Web. 7 July 2008.

10  The title of the page is Works Cited, not “Work Cited.”  All entries of the works cited page should be in alphabetical order.  The first line of your works cited page is not indented, but the following lines are 5 spaces. (Tab)  There is no more underlining. For the names of titles, italicize, do not underline.  When citing in-text, include the author’s name in parentheses followed by the page number without a comma. For example:  She states that “sleeping is highly underrated” (Fussell 8).  If the sentence already states the name of the author in it, just put the page number in the parentheses. For example:  Laura Fussell states that “sleeping is highly underrated” (8).  Only put the title of the article if there is no author, in place of the author’s name. For example:  It states that “sleeping is highly underrated” (“Graduate Students Need Their Sleep” 8).
