Answer

College papers and reports require that all sources be cited and the paper be formatted according to certain formats, depending on the discipline. English and most other departments on campus require MLA style. To find out more about the formats use the Cite MLA LibGuides (see link below).

Look for Cite the EZ Way for tips on getting citations from some of our databases. There is also advice on formatting your paper and how to avoid plagiarism. For even more in depth information you can consult the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers available in the library, LB 2369 G53 2009 and don't forget that COM Writing Center where they can help you your paper, including formatting MLA style.
