The library assignment asks you to write citations in MLA style. Remember that the item records that you find in our catalog and databases are NOT in MLA style. Citations to different kinds of documents require different information. For example (these are not in MLA style):
Remember to abbreviate all names of months, except for May, June and July:
Jan. Feb. Mar.
Apr. Aug. Sept.
Oct. Nov. Dec.
When citing magazine or newspaper articles, include the day, month and year of publication (if available). Write the date in the following format:
day Mo. YYYY
23 Sept. 2012
Use the same format for the date of access.
