  • Next to each note, write (A) to indicate this information came from source A

5. Cite Source in MLA Format
  • A bibliography is a list of sources used when to write a paper.
  • We will cite every source we use, even if it's one small photo or piece of information.
  • Generally, we start with the author's name, then the article title, then the publication name and publishing information.
  • We can use a tool, CiteThisForMe, to help us create our bibliography
    • Press the logo on the site you want to cite
    • Click MLA and then Cite this page.
    • Finally, click Add to bibliography.
    • In your bibliography, edit the citation to make sure that all the information is correct (click the pencil symbol). Update the title of the article, author's name (if given), etc.
  • We can also use the bibliography to go back to our sources and reread our research
