We need to give credit to the authors of the work that you are using. You don’t want to take information made or created by someone else without citing your sources.

MLA Rules:

  • Create your Works Cited page on a separate page at the end of your research paper. 

  • Label the page Works Cited (do not italicize the words Works Cited or put them in quotation marks) and center the words Works Cited at the top of the page.

  • Only the title should be centered. 

  • Double space all citations, but do not skip spaces between entries.

  • Indent the second and subsequent lines of citations by 0.5 inches to create a hanging indent.
