MLA Format

It's important to keep track of where your information comes from so you can accurately cite it. You can take a look at our Citation Help guide for pointers and various online citation management tools, or go straight to our MLA Style Guide for examples.

Remember, SouthernSearch and other library databases can get you started so all you have to do is check for completeness and accuracy!

It's easy to avoid plagiarism!
