1 MLA Style Sheet for ibliography and ootnotes/endnotes (or Humanities) The MLA style of bibliographic citations is often used to cite sources in the humanities. The difference between MLA style and Turabian styles is in punctuation and formatting. ootnotes and Endnotes: The primary function of a footnote or endnote is to inform the reader of the specific place within a work where a writer has cited text or extracted ideas from an outside source. ootnotes allow a person to read a paper without having to go to the end of the paper to locate the bibliographic citations for the materials the author refers to on the page. Endnotes are compiled together at the end of the paper before the bibliography. The footnote/endnote is designed with a number, inserted within the text after the punctuation, which corresponds to a number at the bottom of the page or at the end of the paper. The footnote/endnote is indented five spaces and includes the entire bibliographic citation of sources with page numbers. The footnote/endnote is single-spaced, but double-spaced between citations. asic Citation ormats for ootnotes/endnotes ook Journal Newspaper Example Author s irst and Last Name, Title of the ook, (Place of Publication: Publisher, Date of Publication) Page Number(s).

2 MLA Style Sheet for ibliography and ootnote/endnote Citations (or Humanities) ibliography/works Cited: A bibliography is a list of citations of sources used to write a paper. A writer should include sources from which direct quotes were extracted to support the writer s own ideas, paraphrased ideas from other sources, and sources the writer consulted to gain a general understanding of the research topic. ormatting for a bibliography: Place the bibliography at the end of a paper The title should be ibliography or Works Cited and should appear centered at the top of the page Double-space all lines Arrange entries alphabetically by the author s last name The first line of each entry is at the left margin. Any additional lines for an entry are indented five spaces Additional formatting guidelines for individual parts of a bibliography entry: Author: Last name first, followed by a period. With regards to initials and full name usage, the author s name should appear as it does on the title page of the work being cited. or example, if the author s name appears on the title page as Anthony T. oyle, Ph.D. should appear as oyle, Anthony T. Punctuation: Periods appear after the author, title, and the very end of the complete entry. A colon appears after the place of publication, and a comma is placed after the publisher. or other types of sources, see examples. Title of Sources: ollow the capitalization on the title page.
