mla format
MLA Format!

MLA
  • Citation examples:
  • When using a quote to support your point in the middle of a paragraph, the way to cite is as follows:
      • Example: Delano is described as “a man of such native simplicity as to be incapable of satire or irony” (Melville 287).
      • After you use the quote, you put the author’s last name and the page number that the quote came from, in parentheses.

MLA
  • When paraphrasing, you MUST still cite in order to avoid plagiarism.
  • When using a block quote, you do not need to use actual quotation marks (“ “) because you will be indenting the entire quote.
  • After a block quote, you simply add the page number in parentheses.

MLA
  • Your essays and all future work must be in MLA paper format. The major rules are:
    • All margins must be set at one inch.
