You Tube Video on MLA Citations:

Works Cited Page Sites:


  •  Make sure you’re in MLA Style
  •  Choose “Manual”
  • Click on tab for source type (i.e. website, book, article, et cetera)

Works Cited Tips:

  • Don’t call your source, “Ebsco”  (it’s the journal or magazine that published it, EBSCO is just a database).
  • Don’t call your video “YouTube” or “Netflix” – use the video’s title.

Tips on Creating Titles:

  • Like the aroma of a delicious meal, a good title gives your reader a hint of what your essay is about and arouses curiosity and interest, but it does not tell all.
  • Try alliteration or other type of figurative language.
  • A winning title will hook your readers into your writing.
  • Try not to have it sound like your thesis or the question you answered!
  • Capitalize first, last, and all other important words.  Punctuate it by putting in quotations “Title”
  • Entire essay, size 12 font – even title!
  • You do not need to double-space your final draft.
