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 and create citations and a works cited page. 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... Note: Assume you retrieved this as a .pdf from the Research Library database in LIRN. Also, if you had the article in front of you, you would easily be able to tell that the pages went from 28-31. 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
Name of publisher (or n.p. if not available)
Posting date (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, you’ll notice that we’re 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/ PowerPoint
Include only those works you cited in your paper/ PowerPoint. If you looked at other sources but did not use them, do not include them in your list. Let’s Practice! A FEW MORE HELPFUL RESOURCES

Usually, you put the title of a book in italics (instead of underlining it), and you put the title of an article in quotes.
Author’s name.
The title of the article
The title of periodical
The issue, volume, or date information
The page numbers
Database information (if found online)
Medium of publication

Standard 8: Gather relevant information from multiple print and digital sources, avoid plagiarism, and follow a standard format for citation. What is plagiarism? <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/hdOYE-FLNuo" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> Using the "Sources" on your handout - create a Works Cited page Any Questions? 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 only has to be included in a works cited entry if your professor/ teacher requests you do so. *Luckily for you, this teacher does. 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.
