EBSCO has a great citation tool you can use to cite your eBooks or articles. Here's how:

  1. Perform a search in any EBSCO database.
  2. Click on the title of any article or eBook from your list that you want to cite.
  3. Click on the Cite icon on the right side of the item page:
  4. Citation Format will appear above the article or eBook cited in multiple formats. MLA style is the second to last listed.
  5. Copy the citation and paste into your works cited page.

Citation Format

      Change It Tips:

      1. Format it double spaced.
      2. If entire words in the citation are capitalized, change it so that only first letters are capitalized.
