Works Cited List Tips

The list of works cited is the final section of an MLA-style paper, but should be drafted as you research and write.

Begin the Works Cited list on a new page, but continue with the page numbering used in the body of your paper.

References in this guide are single-spaced, but your Works Cited list should be double-spaced.

Each reference should include a hanging indent (used throughout this guide).

Arrange your references alphabetically by author (or title, when an author is not listed.)

Other names for the Works Cited page include Bibliography and Literature Cited. Works Cited is usually most appropriate, as it accomodates film, recordings, electronic publications, etc.

To cite two or more works by the same author, give the name in the first entry only. In the next entry, type three hyphens ("- - -") in place of the name.
