2 WHAT IS WORKS CITED/WORKS CONSULTED? It is a list of all print and non-print sources used or consulted in writing.Each source listed is called a CITATION.
3 WHY IS WORKS CITED/WORKS CONSULTED NECESSARY? It is required because it gives proper credit to the authors of the information.

5 WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WORKS CITED/WORKS CONSULTED? WORKS CITED: A list of sources that that you actually used in your work. WORKS CONSULTED: A list of sources thatyou actually used and also consulted in preparing your work.
6 WHO CREATED CITATION METHOD? MODERN LANGUAGE ASSOCIATION - (MLA)Developed a universal way for scholars to research and write.
7 MLA Update 2009 2009 changes in MLA: No more Underlining (only use italics)Publication Medium must be identified (e.g. Print, Web, etc.)New Abbreviations (e.g. “N.p.” for “no publisher given”)No more website addressesIn Summer 2008, the Modern Language Association released its third edition of the MLA Style Manual and Guide to Scholarly Publishing, which publicly unveiled modifications to MLA Style for the upcoming year. These changes go into effect April 2009 with the release of MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers (7th edition). General paper formatting (margins, headings, etc.) and in-text citations will remain the same, but all Works Cited style entries will be different from the 6th edition guidelines. The Purdue OWL will begin listing these changes in all our MLA resources in April Here are some of the more noteworthy changes:･No More Underlining! Underlining is no more. MLA now recommends italicizing titles of independently published works (books, periodicals, films, etc).･No More URLs! While website entries will still include authors, article names, and website names, when available, MLA no longer requires URLs. Writers are, however, encouraged to provide a URL if the citation information does not lead readers to easily find the source.･Publication Medium. Every entry receives a medium of publication marker. Most entries will be listed as Print or Web, but other possibilities include Performance, DVD, or TV. Most of these markers will appear at the end of entries; however, markers for Web sources are followed by the date of access.･New Abbreviations. Many web source entries now require a publisher name, a date of publication, and/or page numbers. When no publisher name appears on the website, write N.p. for no publisher given. When sites omit a date of publication, write n.d. for no date. For online journals that appear only online (no print version) or on databases that do not provide pagination, write n. pag. for no pagination.7
