The following page will teach you the basics of MLA Citation, however, there are a few citations you will need for SPAN 2550. Here are some guides to help you construct them.
How to Cite an Essay, Story, or Poem in a Collection:
Lastname, First name. "Title of Essay or Poem." Title of Collection. Ed. Editor's Name(s) First M. Last. City of Publication: Publisher, Year. Page range of entry. Print.
How to Cite a Chapter of a Book:
Lastname, Firstname M. "Section or Chapter Title." Book/Anthology, Ed. Editor's Name(s) First M. Last. City of Publication: Publisher, Year. Page range. Print.
Please note that not every article, book, and website will have all of the information in the exact same place, however, this is a good start to help you find citation elements.
Now that you have the different elements of a citation written down, try to create citations for each of the different kinds of materials. Here is the format:
Author(s). "Title of Article." Title of Journal Volume.Issue (Year): pages. Medium of publication. Date of access. Link.
Editor, author, or compiler name (if available). Name of Site. Version number. Name of institution/organization affiliated with the site (sponsor or publisher), date of resource creation (if available). Medium of publication. Date of access. Link.
Lastname, Firstname. Title of Book. City of Publication: Publisher, Year of Publication. Medium of Publication.
