Why cite?

It is important to document your sources so that the reader can locate them, and so that the original author is credited. Citation styles such as MLA ensure that documentation is consistent and easily interpreted by the reader. Not properly documenting your sources is a form of plagiarism.


What is MLA Style?

MLA (Modern Language Association) style is commonly used to write papers and cite sources in English classes. It specifies how to format citations for books, articles, web sites and other sources both on the works cited page and for in-text citations.
