ENG101: College Writing (McGuire): Citing Your Sources

About MLA

Developed by the Modern Language Association, this style is most widely used for research papers in the humanities.

Each citation consists of two parts: the parenthetical reference, also known as in-text citation, which provides brief identifying information within the text, and the Works Cited, which provides full bibliographic information on a separate page at the end of the paper.

For help with this or any other writing questions, please visit your local campus Writing Center.
