1 MAGEE LIBRARY WORKS CITED STYLE GUIDE This Works Cited Style Guide is based on the Gibaldi MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers Seventh Edition. It has been SLIGHTLY MODIFIED for Magee Secondary School. Many instructors will have different style guides they prefer. The key is to ASK your instructor which style guide they want you to use BEFORE you start your research! Remember that we will willingly check your FINAL i.e. TYPED Works Cited BEFORE you submit it for marking, just make sure you get us to check it a few days BEFORE it is due so that you can make any corrections necessary. You must write down the information for your Works Cited at the top of your page before you start taking notes. A good working Works Cited will use a variety of resources, with a minimum of three different types of resources. 1. The Works Cited appears at the end of your assignment on a separate 8½ x 11" page with your Name, the Date, your Block, and your Teacher s Name in the top right hand corner, and with the title Works Cited centered at the top of the page below your name etc. 2. Use 1" margins on all four sides of your page. 3. Correct any grammatical mistakes. (Especially watch capital letters.) 4. Type using standard fonts eg Times New Roman, and font size Entries are arranged alphabetically by the first word in the entry (usually the author's last name). When the title begins with A, An and The, type the full title including the words "A", "An" and "The". Ignore A, An and The when alphabetizing, ie use the second word to alphabetize. 6. Do NOT number the entries. Do NOT use bullets, dashes, sub-headings or categories. 7. DOUBLE-SPACE ALL ENTRIES (WITHIN AND BETWEEN) 8. Indent the second and subsequent lines one tab (five spaces). 9. Publishing city: when more than one city is listed, use the first one only. 10. Publishing date: when more than one date is given, use the most recent one only. For Encyclopedias use ed. # and dates. (eg 15 th ed. & 2008). 11. Abbreviations: Abbreviate the names of some months. Use a period after the abbreviation. NEVER double up punctuation. See the list of Abbreviations at the end of examples. 12. Format is very important. Note carefully the punctuation, italics, indentation, margins, order of information etc. in ALL the examples given below: Make sure you put 2 spaces after end punctuation (.!?), 1 space after other punctuation, (, : ;) including abbr. punctuation! 13. Make sure you write all the way out to the right margin before you move down to the next line, especially with URLs! Line breaks go only after a single or double slash (/ or //). When handwriting underline any italicized words below. TYPE final copy. 1
