  6. 7. <ul><li>“ In the past this handbook has recommended including URLs of Web sources in works-cited-list entries. Inclusion of the URLs has proven to have limited value, however, for they often change, can be specific to a subscriber session of use, can b so long and complex that typing then into a browser is cumbersome and prone to transcription errors. Readers are now more likely to find resources on the Web by searching for titles and authors’ names than by typing URLs” (p. 182) </li></ul><ul><li>MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers. 7 th ed.
