The examples found in the MLA section are based on the manual MLA Handbook, 8th ed., 2016.
Your full citations are listed at the end of your paper. Start a new page titled “Works Cited”. The citations are in alphabetical order and the whole page is double-spaced. If your citation is longer than one line, indent the following lines by 1.25 cm (hanging indentation). For a sample paper in MLA style visit the Purdue University Online Writing Lab.
The 8th edition of MLA citation style has designed a method of creating citations that can be applied to any source. There are now 9 core elements that are to be included in a citation. When citing a source look for these elements and list them in the order given. Use the punctuation as shown unless it’s the last element, which should end with a period. If an element is missing from your source simply leave it out of your citation.
Each of these elements is explained in more detail (see menu). Some examples are also provided. If you need further help please ask at the library.
