Style & Citation Help

There are different ways you can format your paper and cite your sources. In English and Literature classes, the Modern Language Association (MLA) citation and format style is the most popular. 

The MLA Handbook is available at all the campus libraries. You can also use the online resources below to help you format your paper and cite your sources. If you get stuck, the Writing Center at the ILC is always available to help you with any formatting and citation questions. 

MLA Style and Citation

Citation Practice


Plagiarism occurs when you take someone else's work or ideas and pass them off as your own. While some students may intentionally copy another's work, others accidentally plagiarize simply because they didn't cite their sources correctly. Check out the resources below to make sure you aren't accidentally plagiarizing another person's work. 

Citing Sources in MLA Style Video

The following video explains how to cite sources using the MLA 9th edition handbook.
