  • The works cited citation depends on what kind of source you have;
  • Basically, you’ll have three kinds of sources:
    • Books
    • Journals
    • Online
books
Books
  • One author
  • Multiple authors
  • Anthology
slide16

One author

Anthology

Multiple authors

slide17

Multiple authors

Single author

Anthology

Alphabetize by the author’s last name

journals
Journals
  • Journals with continuous pagination;
  • Journals with each issue pages separately;
  • Monthly magazine;
slide19

Monthly

Continuous pagination means that all of the issues of one volume have consecutively number pages; thus the first issue of the volume might contain pages 1-145 and the second issue of the volume might contain pages 146-290, etc.

Weekly magazine--Note that volume numbers are not listed for magazines. The article title is placed in quotation marks, and periodical titles should be underlined.

Non-Continuous Pagination means that each issue begins pagination separately; the first, second, third, etc. issues of a volume will each begin with page 1.

online
Online
  • For this essay, you cannot use the Internet;
  • You can, however, use an article from OC’s online data base.
slide24

Off-campus, your user name is your student ID number and your password is your first initial, last name, i.e., dsmith

slide25

You’ll cite the source according to what kind it is—journal article, book chapter, etc—but then you’ll have a reference to the database in which you found it

the essay and general literature index
The Essay and General Literature Index
  • This is a print index that lists essays published in book form, as part of a collection of essays;
  • OC has bought books listed in this index for years, so you’re likely to find research material using this index.
  • Each volume covers a different set of years and contains different sources;
how to use it
How to Use It
  • Look up the writer that you’re researching, alphabetically by last name
    • Shakespeare, William
normally
Normally. . .
  • If the author is important, there will be multiple sections under his/her name
    • General essays about the author
    • Essays about specific works arranged alphabetically by the work’s title
slide32

To find the essay, you have to find the book that it’s in—in this case, the book by J. Bayley, The Uses of Division, unity and Disharmony in Literature.

This is the name of the person who wrote the essay

This is the name of the essay itself

This is the name and author of the book where the particular essay exists. Look for the word in and the information that follows it

Look at this entry

there s one more citation form to teach you
There’s one more citation form to teach you:
  • The Gale Series
    • This is reference book that compiles critical essays from other sources into edited volumes, kind of like Readers’ Digest;
    • You can use this for just one of your sources;
    • What follows is help for how to cite from the Gale series
slide35

In your works cited entry, you must provide the information that will let a reader find the article either in the original source or in the Gale source.

That means you’ll need to look for the article’s original citation. In the earlier volumes, it comes at the end of the article

slide36

In more recent volumes of Gale, the bibliographic information is at the beginning of the article

Wherever you find it, you’ll need to be able to recognize what the original source was, i.e., journal, book, etc. Write the works cited entry as you would if you had read the critical essay in its original source.

slide37

The volume

The book’s name

The editor’s name

Publisher and place of publication

But you also need to note the information from the Gale reference book you’re using. Go to the title page of the reference book.
