Works Cited

  • The Work’s Cited list should appear at the end of your essay on a separate sheet of paper.




  • It provides the information necessary for a reader to locate and read any sources you cite in the essay.




  • Each source you cite in the essay must appear in your Work’s Cited list; likewise, each entry in the works-cited list must be cited in your text with a parenthetical documentation.







  • Citationmachine.net or easybib.com can help you create your Work’s Cited page.

Parenthetical Documentation

  • Parenthetical documentation gives credit to the source—it tells where you found your facts. You MUST put a parenthetical documentation at the END of each sentence that contains facts/ideas from someone else. You put your period after the parenthesis.

  • You MUST use parenthetical documentation for quotes as well as paraphrased facts.

  • http://library.austincc.edu/help/mla/ has info on parenthetical and works cited examples. It also shows how to format in a word document.

  • http://www.easybib.com/help/paren has easy to understand rules for parenthetical documentation.

  • Do not use back-to-back parenthetical citations; each citation should be followed by your ideas, explanations, or analysis.

  • Book example:

    • For a book, you put the author’s last name and the page number of that fact.

    • Barack Obama went to Harvard Law school in 1988 at the age of 27 ( Gormley 78).

    • For a website, if it has an author, use the author’s last name, but if it doesn’t, put the “title of the website” NOT THE WEB ADDRESS!

    • “Employment of dentists is expected to grow by 21 percent from 2010 to 2020, faster than the average for all occupations” (“Dentists”).

    • From an online database like elibrary, use the author’s last name and page number (if listed) or “Title of article” and page number. If no page number, just use the author’s name or “Title of article”
