21 Mar Citing Sources in MLA Style: A Basic Introduction
UPDATE: MLA has published a new, 8th edition. Some of the recommendations for citing are quite different. We are currently working on a new video series. Please see our online guide for help with MLA 8th edition: http://www.library.mun.ca/researchtools/guides/citations/mla/
This video explains how to cite your sources in the text of your research paper, according to the 7th edition of the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers, including: in-text quotations (0:35), block quotes (1:15), no page number (1:55), no author (2:13).
The content was created by Crystal Rose, Public Services Librarian, Memorial University Libraries, in partnership with the university’s department of Distance Education, Learning & Teaching Support.
