Bergen Community College © 2005 3 My instructor says I need to use MLA format when creating a Works Cited page. What is that?
Bergen Community College © 2005 4 MLA Format MLA stands for Modern Language Association. MLA format, developed by the Modern Language Association, provides the style most instructors in the humanities require for papers. There are other formats that can be used, such as APA (American Psychological Association) or the Chicago Manual of Style. Each format has its own set of rules.
Bergen Community College © 2005 5 General Rules for Works Cited Pages in MLA Format Double space everything on a Works Cited page. Center the title Works Cited (no bold, italics, or underlining) and place it at the top of the page. Use a “hanging indent” after the first line of each entry.
Bergen Community College © 2005 6 OK: so what does it look like? “Hanging” Indent Centered Title Everything is double-spaced, and there are no line spaces between entries.
Bergen Community College © 2005 7 General Rules for Works Cited Entries The author is usually first in a Works Cited entry, followed by the source’s title(s) and publication information. Place the titles of smaller works (articles, short stories, book chapters, poems, songs) in quotation marks. Italicize the titles of larger works (books, journals, magazines, newspapers, and films). Capitalize the first letter of each word in titles (except articles, short prepositions, or conjunctions).
Bergen Community College © 2005 8 More Rules for a Works Cited Page Include publication medium (Print or Web) in each citation. All Web sources need two dates: the date that the Web page was last updated and the date the information was accessed from the Internet.
Bergen Community College © 2005 9 Works Cited Entry for a Book The ideal context for identity formation is “a supportive and respectful family” (Levine 169). Works Cited Levine, Madeleine, Ph.D. See No Evil: A Guide to Protecting Our Children from Media Violence. San Francisco: Jossey-Bass, 1998. Print. In-text Citation Works Cited Entry Wow!

Works Cited Wilgoren, Jodi. “Shooting Rampage by Student Leaves 10 Dead on Reservation.” New York Times 22 Mar. 2005, sec. 1: A-1+. Print. In-text Citation Works Cited Entry
Bergen Community College © 2005 11 Works Cited Entry for a Web Site Columbia University Professor Jeffrey Johnson spent seventeen years recording the viewing habits of children in 707 families in Upstate New York and found that the ones “who watched one to three hours of television each day... were 60% more likely to be involved in assaults and fights as those who watched less TV” (“Research”). Works Cited “Research on the Effects of Media Violence.” Media Awareness Network. 2005. Web. 12 Mar. 2005 In-text Citation Works Cited Entry
