ENGWR 480 (online) - Professor Rodgers (Spring 2020): MLA Style

What Should I Do on This Page?

On this page, you'll find a MLA Style Overview video and print resources that will show you how to generate in-text citations and a Works Cited page in Word and Google Docs.  Definitely watch this video if you haven't used the 8th edition or if you'd like a review of the citations process.

If you're not sure when or why you should cite sources, please watch the Cite Your Sources video.  In addition to this video, there are several print sources, like this MLA citation guide from ARC's Library, that you can use to help guide you craft your citations.

One of my favorites for citing online sources, is (works best with the Firefox browser); it's free and easy to use.  Watch the video below for more information about how to use this resource.

If you have any questions about this part of the research process, you can:

  • Email me directly at: (I'll email you back within 24 hours Mon - Fri).
  • Use the 24/7 Chat with a Librarian global service (staffed by an international team of librarians).
  • Call the Research Help Desk (916-484-8458) and leave a message.  A librarian will call you back within 24 hours (Mon - Fri).
