MLA Rules:

  • Create your Works Cited Page on a separate page at the end of your research paper. 

  • Label the page Works Cited (do not italicize the words Works Cited or put them in quotation marks) and center the words Works Cited at the top of the page.

  • Only the title should be centered. 

  • Double space all citations, but do not skip spaces between entries.

  • Indent the second and subsequent lines of citations by 0.5 inches to create a hanging indent.
