  1. MLA FORMAT

  2. MLA stands for Modern Language Association • MLA is simply a way of formatting research papers. • MLA is used in most Colleges and Universities. • MLA is especially important when creating a Works Cited (list of sources used) page

  3. MLA formatted papers usually have (a): • parenthetical citations – credit given to an author when quoted. Credit is given by using the author’ last name and the page number from where the quotes came from. For Example (Lee 27) • Works Cited – a page on which all the references used in your paper are listed. (Like a Bibliography)

  4. IMPORTANT When using MLA format to create a Works Cited page: • Every COMMA, Every PERIOD AND Every CAPITAL LETTER COUNTS. • Every LINE OF AN ENTRY AFTER THE FIRST IS INDENTED (hanging indent) • Every line is EQUALLY DOUBLE SPACED (writing on every other line) • The Entries are listed ALPHABETICALLY based on the first word in the entry.
