If your instructor allows you to use electronic citation services to help build your citations you might give KnightCite a try. The default format is MLA. Make sure to select the resource type that you are citing on the left side of the page. Different resource types are cited differently so this is a necessary step in building a citation. Then, fill in the boxes and click submit to generate the citation for your resource. With electronic tools we do recommend verifying the accuracy of the citation.
To verify KnightCite's citation or build your own citation, we have the most recent MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers available in our libraries. This book will show you how to build citations for various resource types. For an online resource on how to build citations, the Purdue Online Writing Lab can be very helpful. Our librarians have also created a citation research guide.
