Works Cited (aka Bibliography) In-text citation (IN your paper) But Mrs. Murphy, why do we have to do it TWICE??
MAJOR works (Books, Newspaper TITLES, Magazines etc) = UNDERLINED or ITALICS SMALLER works (Chapters in books, article titles, webpage titles) = “Quotation marks”
Located on the LAST PAGE of the essay YES! It needs its own page!
DOUBLE SPACED Centered title of “Works Cited” Alphabetized by the first word in the entry Each new entry flush with the left margin If an entry goes onto the second line (or third), they should be INDENTED.
Just remember…it should include AS MUCH INFO as you can find! If you can’t find a piece of information, just leave it out! But Mrs. Murphy, what if I can’t find some of the information it asks for?

Anytime you use someone else’s idea or info you got from another source(either a direct quote OR a paraphrase), you need to include source information. What does it need to include? Enough information to link it to the works cited entry.
Should be IN parentheses Comes AFTER the quotation or paraphrase NO punctuation in the parentheses DO NOT write the words “pg.” or “pg. #” “this is my quote” (Murphy 12). “this is my quote” (Murphy, 12). “this is my quote” (Murphy 12.) “this is my quote” (Murphy pg 12).
AUTHOR’S LAST NAME and Pg. # If there’s no pg. #, leave it out! If there’s no author, put the Article in “” or Book Title If there’s no article title, use whatever is first on that work’s cited entry Example: Romantic poetry is characterized by the "spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings" (Wordsworth 263).
Simply quote/paraphrase the information and place the author-page AFTER the quote. Example: Romantic poetry is characterized by the "spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings" (Wordsworth 263).
If you use the author’s name in the text to introduce a direct quote or idea, then you only need to cite the PAGE # in the parentheses. Example: Wordsworth stated that Romantic poetry was marked by a "spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings" (263).
If your quote is more than 4 typed lines, it is considered a LONG or BLOCK quote and must be formatted and cited differently
PARAPHRASE the information and place the citation after the paraphrase. Example: Wordsworth extensively explored the role of emotion in the creative process (263). OR The poet extensively explored the role of emotion in the creative process (Wordsworth 263).
