  1. Making a Works Cited List Or giving credit where credit is due… Created by Leslie Poulos and Candice McCann

  2. What is a “works cited” list? • A list of the sources that you used to get information for your research, project, or assignment. It is a specific way of giving credit to the original source. • Sources can include any number of things. Some examples are: books, movies, songs, encyclopedias, web sites, people, documents, magazines, newspapers, and databases. Created by Leslie Poulos and Candice McCann

  3. Why do you need a works cited list? • To demonstrate where you found your information • To avoid plagiarism • To respect intellectual property by giving credit to the original creator. • To make it easy for the reader of your paper to find information on your topic Created by Leslie Poulos and Candice McCann

  4. What is Intellectual Property? • Creative works and ideas are considered to be property that has value. This property is protected from theft by federal laws. • The creator of that property owns it and must be credited or compensated when someone else uses it. • Plagiarism is a type of theft. When you take someone else’s work and fail to give credit to its owner you are stealing. • Plagiarism can cost you grade points in middle and high school, or even get you expelled once you reach college.

  6. A citation you might recognize • Music CD inserts often have their own version of a works cited list, called “Liner Notes”, that will give credit to who wrote the song, who played which instruments, and others who helped the artist. • It will also give credit to the original artist of any work they may have borrowed, or “sampled”.

  7. What is an MLA Style citation? • MLA stands for Modern Language Association • This group has standardized the format for citing sources used in written work • The MLA publishes and updates their standards on a regular basis • Each type of source has its own special way of being cited Created by Leslie Poulos and Candice McCann
