MLA Works Cited: General Guidelines


The reference page in MLA is called the works cited page, and it includes complete publication information for only those sources used in a document. Here are some general guidelines and samples for the works cited:


For examples of specific reference entries, please refer to the entries found under "How do I document . . ." on the LEO's MLA Documentation. Also see the Modern Language Association's Frequently Asked Questions about MLA Style: http://www.mla.org/style_faq. These guidelines are taken from two books by Joseph Gibaldi: The MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers (Sixth Edition, New York: Modern Language Association, 2003) and the MLA Style Guide to Scholarly Publishing (Second Edition, New York: Modern Language Association, 1998).
