 Works Cited Information

Documentation of Resources

Each time that you use someone else's words, idea or pictures in your research and writing you must give credit to that person or group.  You should do this by creating a Work(s) Cited page.  In a paper, the Works Cited page appears as  the final page of the document.  Howerver, citations may appear on Power Point slides or under pictures or maps in a visual presentation.   At  Jefferson Middle School, we use the MLA format to create citations.  Examples of the Work Cited guide sheets that are used in the library are provided on this page.

 Works Cited Page Hints and Tips

*  The words "Works Cited" should be centered at the top of the page.

*  Citations must appear in alphabetical order by the first word of each entry (do not include a, an, or the when alphabetizing). 

*  Citations that begin with numbers should appear in numerical order before words.

*  The works cited page is double spaced both within and between citations.

*  Punctuation must be exact; there is no room for error. 

*  The works cited page should be the last page of your paper.

*  Any pictures or graphs that appear in your paper must also be cited if they retrieved from another source.

*  Begin the first line of an entry at the left margin, and indent each additional line of the citation five spaces or one  tab.
