Cite My Sources

(based on MLA style)

If you're online, you can use Citation Maker.

A Works Cited page in a report gives credit to the authors or creators who originally researched and published the information. Please do not use their information or pictures as your own. You are committing plagiarism when you use information that you have found in your research without giving credit.

As you are gathering information for a research project, write down the author, title, publishing company, and copyright date of the sources you use. If you are using a website, also record the URL (web address) and the date you visited the site.  

Look at the sample title page to learn where to find this information in a book: Title Page.

The MLA Elementary Citation Worksheets page contains links to 22 downloadable MLA elementary citation worksheets in  PDF and RTF formats.
