When citing sources it is important to cite them in two different ways; an in-text citation within the body of your paper and on the works cited page at the end of your paper.

When citing a novel on the works cited page in MLA format you can follow this format:

Author's Last name, First name. Book Title. City of Publication: Publisher, Year of Publication. Medium of Publication.

So, the novel, 1984 would appear as follows:

Orwell, George. 1984. London: Secker and Warburg, 1949. Print.

When citing a website on the works cited page in MLA format you can follow this format:

Editor, author, or compiler name (if available). Name of Site. Version number. Name of sponsor or publisher, date of resource creation (if available). Medium of publication. Date of access.

So if you were citing the eNotes website if would appear like this: 

"Study Guides, Lesson Plans, Homework Help, Answers & More - ENotes.com." Enotes.com. Enotes.com, n.d. Web. 23 Nov. 2015.

When creating an in-text citation:

It is important that you include a parenthetical citation after you implement a quote in your paper. Typically they look like this, (Orwell 100). Make sure that the parenthetical citation comes after the quotation marks. Furthermore, you can follow the same in-text citation rules for a website (Author 100). Lastly, if you cannot find the author (particularly for websites), it is ok to use the title of the work you are citing. 

There are a ton of great resources out there. Easybib can format your MLA citations for you and Purdue OWL is a great resource if you want to try to figure it out!

  • For the first (or only) author, first include the author's last name, followed by a comma, followed by the author's first name.  [Example]

  • If the author's name has already been listed on the Works Cited page, do not list it again.  Instead, use "---" for all works other than the first.  List all the works by an author alphabetically by title.  [Example]

  • For two or three authors, list the authors in the order in which they appear on the title page.  Do not reverse the names of authors other than the first.  Follow each author's name with a comma and precede the last author with "and."  [Example]

  • For four or more authors, either list all the authors as with two or three authors, or cite only the first author listed on the title page, followed by ", et. al."  [Example]

  • If the book is a corporate or institutional publication, give the name of the corporation or institution as the author. [Example]

  • If there is no author, but an editor or editors instead, list the editor(s), followed by "ed." or "eds."  [Example]
  • If the work is anonymous, start the citation with the title (and alphabetize it based on the title.)  [Example]
