Works Cited Page
The point of this page is to make it easy for the reader to be able to find where you found this information. Basically, if I look at your parenthetical citation, I should be able to refer to your works cited page and find the EXACT location the cited information came from.
Sources should be in alphabetical order by last name of the author or first word in the works cited format.
Citations are usually the author’s last name and the page that the material came from. If no author is available, use a DISTINGUISHING part of the title.
Ex: As a young child, Pablo lived in France (Williams 183).
When he was 14, his family moved to the United States (“Picasso: The Life”).
If you use the last name in the sentence only include the page number.
Ex: Johnson states that three out of every five high school students love the Chicago Cubs (256).
NOTE: (citation) goes after the “”
