Note: all of these citations are examined more in-depth in the pages on Print Sources and Online Sources. Many of these examples come directly from MLA Handbook 8th Edition.
In MLA style, the works-cited page is double spaced, with the same spacing within and between citations. Format the works-cited list so that the second and subsequent lines of the citation are indented .5 inches from the margin (hanging indent).
Citations beginning with names and those beginning with titles are to be alphabetized together. Numbers in titles are treated as though they have been spelled out. For names, alphabetize based on the letters that come before the comma separating the last name from the first, and disregard any spaces or other punctuation in the last name. Ignore any special characters (like with @) that might appear before a name or pseudonym. For titles, ignore articles such as "a" and "the" (and equivalents in other languages) for alphabetization purposes. If the title begins with a number, organize the entry as if it were alphabetized (for example, consider "1" as "One").
The title "Works Cited" indicates that the list you provide contains only the works you actually cite in your paper. If you wish to also include in your list works that you consult but do not cite, give your page the broader title "Works Consulted."
