MLA uses a parenthetical reference type of citation that is inserted into the body of your paper and refers to the Work Cited list located at the end of your paper. The citation lists only enough information to guide a reader to the Works Cited list.

A Works Cited list is in alphabetical order located at the end of the paper and contains the full details about where the reference information may be found if the reader wishes to further investigate your source.

Citations are required after direct quotations and are recommended anywhere you are stating information that isn't yours.
