MLA Citation Guide

  • Alphabetize your list of sources by the author's last name; if no author name exists for the source, start the citation with the title of the document
  • Double-space between each citation and between each line within a citation
  • After the first line of a citation (which is set flush left), all subsequent lines must be indented one-half inch (five spaces in 12 point font). (See examples below)

The examples found in the documents below are based on the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers (7th ed. - 2009).  Please see this book or the College reference librarians for additional help and examples. (The book is located at the College library reference desk.)
