Continue Cornell Notes.


Have you ever had a friend or sibling steal one of your ideas and present it as his/her own idea? How did you feel?

If you've never experienced this, you can probably imagine feeling angry or betrayed. Most of us understand the ethics associated with stealing ideas from others, but may not associate "stealing" with the act of using another person's words without giving proper reference.

What does an In-Text Citation look like?


"MLA style is widely used to document sources in writing that deals with literature, languages, and other fields in the humanities" (Lunsford 367).

  • The in-text citation is the author’s last name and the page number in this sample.
  • Here is the corresponding Works Cited entry:

Lunsford, Andrea. The College Writer's Reference. Boston: Bedford St.Martin's, 2005.

mla changes
MLA Changes
  • Note that underlining is no longer acceptable on typed works. Use italics instead. When you are handwriting, you may underline as it signifies the same thing.
  • Long URLs do not need to be included anymore. If the source is easy to get to based on your citation information, omit the URL.
