Q

Can you help me get an MLA citation from EBSCO: Academic Search Complete?

Answer

Sure. Once you find a promising article, click on the title link. Once in the detailed record or the full text, you can get the citation. Look at the tools on the right. If you hover your mouse over them, you will see what they are for. The citation tool is a piece of paper. Click on the citation tool icon, and then scroll down until you see the MLA style citation. Copy and paste that into your Word document.

Be sure to correct for spacing and indentation.

These instructions are good for all EBSCO databases.

For detailed instructions on how to obtain citations from COM Library databses, go to our Cite MLA Style LibGuide below, and then click the Cite the EZ Way tab.

Also, for examples on citing different types of sources, in text citation, etc, visit Purdue Owl's MLA Guide, also linked below.
