Notes & Practice in Citing/Crediting Material/Information Other Than Yours []

Name: Course/CRN Term/year





First you have to identify the author of the source: For class writing about an assigned reading, you would include that already in the template introductory information, but the author should still be cited as it should always be to distinguish your comments from source material. When in doubt, cite.
Each source within the writing should also be introduced before you include the material. These introductions are called Signal Phrases or Tag lines and can be worded in various ways like: Charles Brown discusses many aspects of his growing up in a family home that was very small. He writes, “We all lived in one room”(Brown 8). Please see the Signal Phrase handout for many choices of ways to vary these necessary introductions. For basic MLA: Cornell Univ. MLA Citing--Examples and Explanation

THE FOLLOWING GUIDELINES MAY NOT BE ACCURATE FOR EVERY SOURCE. CONSULT AN EXPERT HANBOOK( or citation maker) FOR SPECIAL ENTRIES.


  1. The complete publishing Information for the source would be LISTED for a Works Cited like:

a) BOOK--AUTHOR last name FIRST) Tan, Amy. ( TITLE UNDERLINED) The Bonesetter’s Daughter. (LOCATION AND

PUBLISHER) New York: Putnam, (YEAR PUBLISHED) 2001. ( MEDIUM/FORMAT) Print.


  1. Within your sentence, to credit where the information came from, put the AUTHOR’S LAST NAME IN parenthesis at end of the area where you’ve included that information. Here’s an EXAMPLE of summarizing what the author of the source might have discussed: The author writes that her childhood was difficult and lonely (Tan) .

a) If the information is actually the exact words of the source, it must be shown as a QUOTE by using quotation marks [ ---- ] where it starts in your writing, and again where it ends. For a QUOTE you must also show the page number where you found those words, like (Tan 25) immediately after the quote even if it’s not at the end of a sentence. In MLA there is no comma between name and page number. If the quote would take 4 or more lines of your essay, then it must be indented 10sp from the left margin, run to the right margin and the cite goes AFTER the period.

  1. Periodical/article: (AUTHOR name) Wood, Michael. (article TITLE in quotes)“Broken Dates: Fiction and the Century.”(Periodical title underlined) Kenyon Review (volume number)22.3 (year published) (2000): (pages covered)50-64.(medium)Print. (or Web) .

    1. Crediting information by the author of an article within a whole work which has a different author or editor: (Smith in Tan) or for a quote (Smith in Tan 30).

  2. For information found on the internet, the same applies: WEB: (AUTHOR name or if no author given, the web page TITLE FIRST in quotes like>) “Obesity Trends in the U.S. since 1962.(then the web site title) Center for Health. (then the date you accessed it) 3 Oct. 2012. (medium)Web.

    1. The web address (URL—the “www” etc.) is not required and usually should not be included..

    2. If no author name is given, just use first word or two of the title in quotes, like (“Obesity Trends”) .

    3. If there is no page number, just include n.p. in place of the page number, like (“Obesity Trends” n.p.) .
