Creating an Alphabetical Works Cited Page
According to the MLA style, the works cited page is a list of sources that are referenced
directly in a research paper. You place the list on a separate numbered page with the title,
Works Cited, centered one inch from the top margin. The works are to be alphabetized
by the author’s last name or, if the work has no author, by the work’s title. The ﬁ rst line of
each entry begins at the left margin. Indent subsequent lines of the same entry one-half
inch from the left margin.
Create the list of sources.
A bibliography is an alphabetical list of sources referenced in a paper. Whereas the text of
the research paper contains brief references to the source (the citations), the bibliography
lists all publication information about the source. Documentation styles differ signiﬁ cantly
in their guidelines for preparing a bibliography. Each style identiﬁ es formats for various
sources including books, magazines, pamphlets, newspapers, Web sites, television programs,
paintings, maps, advertisements, letters, memos, and much more. You can ﬁ nd information
about various styles and their guidelines in printed style guides and on the Web.
