  1. 1. How to create a Works Cited Sheet. MLA Style Guide
  2. 2. How to create a Works Cited Sheet.  There are some simple rules to follow no matter which MLA sheet you are handing in. ALWAYS list your sources alphabetically by authors LAST name. If there is no author then you use the first FULL word of the article title; note A, AN, AND, OF and THE do not count.
  3. 3. How to create a Works Cited Sheet. Example: Boogey, Tony. “Halloween Horrors”. Movie Reviews. (October 2008). Web. Sept. 16, 2010. “A Driving Law Changes”. The Hamilton Spectator. July 16, 2010. A6. Print. Note the B comes before D (and we ignore the A in the second title).
  4. 4. How to create a Works Cited Sheet. Boogey, Tony. “Halloween Horrors”. Movie Reviews. (October 2008). Web. Sept. 16, 2010. “A Driving Law Changes”. The Hamilton Spectator. July 16, 2010. A6. Print. Also note that the first line is all the way to the margin, whereas the rest of the lines for the same source are tabbed over once. That makes it easier for the reader to distinguish where one source finishes and the next one starts.
  5. 5. Example (with page number): Price, T. “Love in the Stars”. Space. 14.3 (2006):16-19. Web. 22 Sept 2010. Example (without page number): Price, T. “Doing Research Right”. Ontario Librarian. 12 (2009). Web. 04 Sept 2010.
  6. 6. How to create a Works Cited Sheet.  In the case of on-line material you are only to provide the first few words of whatever will appear first in the Works Cited Sheet you are creating. You no longer include the URL in any of the actual information – UNLESS your teacher says to.  Instead you must list what type of source you are using.  Hands on stuff – Print  WebPages, online encyclopaedia – Web  TV shows - video
  7. 7. How to create a Works Cited Sheet.  EVERY single source has a little different way of writing up the information – PAY ATTENTION to the booklet you have been given as it shows EXACTLY how each source is to be used!  If all else fails – ASK THE LIBRARIAN! That is what we are here for.
