Use the frame on the left to find how to cite different formats in your bibliography, and how to cite sources within your analysis.
Make sure you are using the 2009, seventh edition of MLA and your version of MS Office.
Junge, Wolfgang, and Nathan Nelson. “Nature's Rotary Electromotors.”Science 29 Apr. 2005: 642-44. Science Online. Web. 5 Mar. 2009.
Langhamer, Claire. “Love and Courtship in Mid-Twentieth-Century England.” Historical Journal 50.1 (2007): 173-96. ProQuest. Web. 27 May 2009.
Note: If you are copying the citation from a Library Database, such as EBSCO, watch for common mistakes in the CITE function in databases. You will need to:
add the Hanging Idention of 1/2 inch for each citation
check the capitalization. In MLA you do NOT capitalize articles (the, an), prepositions, or conjunctions unless one is the first word of the title or subtitle.
check your italics. In MLA both the title of the journal and the name of the database are put in italics.
