MLA Citations

28 Sep

Here a few great resources to help you with MLA citations!

The Purdue OWL (online writing lab) is a great resource for all things writing related. It has information on how to write in specific styles, deciphering the requirements of different genres, and, of course, how to cite correctly.

A video from my colleague, Bill Torgerson, on using in-text citations (parenthetical citations) and signal phrases:

Here is another video from Torg about works cited pages:

And finally, when in doubt, you may use a citation generator to help you along. You should be familiar with the rules, however, as the generators don’t always get it right, especially if you type the information incorrectly. I use KnightCite from time to time because I know it is up-to-date with the most current MLA style guide edition.
