MLA Citation Style

What is MLA?
  • MLA is a citation style used to document the sources in your research paper or project.
  • You will cite your sources in text, meaning they appear in parentheses after you have paraphrased or quoted your source.
  • You will also cite your sources in your works cited page at the end of your paper.
Why do I have to cite? 
  • You MUST cite all original work that is not your own. All authors deserve credit for their hard work.
  • Not citing original work is called plagiarism, which can result in failing papers and further academic consequences.
Where can I get help?
  • Talk to your professor about their citation requirements.
  • Set up an appointment with URSA's Writing Center.
