MLA Citation Guide

  • Alphabetize your list of sources by the author's last name; if no author name exists for the source, start the citation with the title of the document.
  • Double-space between each citation and between each line within a citation.
  • After the first line of a citation (which is set flush left), all subsequent lines must be indented one-half inch (five spaces in 12 point font). (See examples below).
  • Examples are based on the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers (8th ed. - 2016) which is located at the Learning Commons Information Desk. Please see this book or the College's reference librarians for additional help and examples.
