For help with MLA-style citations, click on the “Help Citing Sources” link under the “Find” menu on the Library’s home page:
On this page, you’ll find links to handy references on how to cite in MLA-style (the Purdue OWL, for example, gives good directions on how to cite dictionary entries), plus some tools that will actually help you build MLA-style citations. These “citation builders” ask you for all the information about your source – the author, title, publication date, etc. – and then format it for you.
