HOW TO CREATE
Citations
MLA
Modern Language Association
Books
Articles
Websites
THE GOAL
Students should be able to find bibliographic information for different types of documents/ sources, create citations and a works cited page.
EasyBib, CitationMachine, and others are simply tools to assist you in citing your sources.
You are responsible for being aware of changes/updates in MLA and creating a proper Bibliography or Works Cited Page.
Everything you need is available online, Owl Purdue Site, etc... Please ask your Keystone teachers and librarians!
Author name
(Last name, First name).

Full Title.
Publication city: Publisher name,
date of publication.

Medium of publication.
Weart, Spencer R.
The Discovery of Global Warming.
Cambridge: Harvard UP, 2003.
Print.
Next...
Look closely at the following article to retrieve as much information for your citation as you can.
Adler, Ben.
“Are Cows Worse Than Cars?”
The American Prospect
Dec. 2008
: 28-31. Research Library.
Web. 21 Mar. 2010.
A QUICK NOTE:
Notice the lack of punctuation between the
magazine title and the dates of publication
(which are abbreviated).
Ideally, you look for the following:
Author’s name (if available)
Title of webpage
Name of website
N
ame of
p
ublisher (or
n.p.
if not available)
P
osting
d
ate (or
n.d.
if not available)
Medium of publication
Date of access
“Fight Climate Change with Diet Change.”

GoVeg.com. PETA,

n.d.

Web.
21 March 2010.

<http://fightclimatechangewithdietchange.goveg.com>.
A QUICK NOTE:
In this last example, notice that we are missing some information: the author’s name and the posting date. They are not listed on this website, but if they were, they might be at the bottom of the page, so make sure you’re looking everywhere on the site to find it.
HOW TO FORMAT THE
WORKS CITED PAGE!
Keep in mind a few things when formatting the Works Cited page:
Alphabetize entries by the authors’ last names or title (if names are not available).
Double-space everything, but don’t include extra spaces between entries.
Each entry should begin flush with the left margin. Lines after the first are indented one-half inch (or 5 spaces).
Write the words “Works Cited” at the very top.
Include Works Cited page at the end of your paper.
Include only those works you cited in your paper. If you looked at other sources but did not use them, do not include them in your list.
Practice makes Perfect!

Debity 14
Author name (Last name, First name).
"Article title."

Name of site. Publisher/ sponsor,
Date of last update.

Medium of publication.
Date of Access.

<URL>.
The URL can be included in a works cited entry if your professor/teacher requests you do so as it is no longer required by MLA.
*Ask your teacher first, but I believe it a good idea to include the URL to refer too ;-)
Also, if there is an editor (instead of an author), place the abbreviation
"ed."
after the name.

For example:
Weart, Spencer R.,
ed.

The Discovery of Global Warming.
Cambridge: Harvard UP, 2003. Print.
*book title in
italics,
article title in
"quotes."
or using information without permission.
We have many resources available in the library, online via your teachers and librarians! There is no excuse to be left out of the information loop. Help is everywhere!
