Case Problem 2
Data File needed for this Case Problem: Armstrong.docx
Franklin College of the Arts Gabe Saydoff is a student at Franklin College of the Arts.
He’s working on a research paper about Louis Armstrong, the great jazz trumpet player.
The research paper is only partly fi nished, with notes in brackets indicating the material
Gabe still plans to write. He also inserted the uppercase word “CITATION” wherever
he needs to insert a citation. Gabe asks you to help him format this early draft to match
the MLA style. He also asks you to help him create some citations and a fi rst attempt
at a bibliography. He will update the bibliography later, after he fi nishes writing the
research paper.
1. Open the fi le Armstrong located in the Word2\Case2 folder included with your
Data Files, and then save the document as Armstrong Paper in the same folder.
2. In the fi rst paragraph, replace “Gabe Saydoff” with your name, adjust the font size,
line spacing, paragraph spacing, and paragraph indents to match the MLA style.
3. Insert your last name and a page number in the upper-right corner of every page
except the fi rst page in the document.
4. If necessary, select MLA Sixth Edition as the citations and bibliography style.
5. Use the Navigation Pane to fi nd three instances of the uppercase word “CITATION.”
6. Delete the fi rst instance of “CITATION” and the space before it, and then create a
new source with the following information:
Type of Source: Book
Author: Phillip James Robins
Title: Louis Armstrong, Man of Music: His Early Years in New Orleans and Chicago
Year: 2000
City: New York
Publisher: Blue Note Press
7. Edit the citation to add “23” as the page number.
8. Delete the second instance of “CITATION” and the space before it, and then create a
new source with the following information:
Type of Source: Sound Recording
Performer: Louis Armstrong
Album Title: The Complete Hot Five and Hot Seven Recordings, Remastered
Production Company: Columbia
Year: 2000
Medium: CD
9. Edit the citation to suppress only the Author and the Year, so that it displays only
the title.
10. Delete the third instance of “CITATION” and the space before it, and then insert a
second reference to the book by Phillip Robins.
11. Edit the citation to add “35” as the page number.
12. At the end of the document, start a new page, and insert a bibliography with the
preformatted heading “Works Cited.”
13. Edit the source you created, changing the last name from “Robins” to “Robbins.”
14. Update the bibliography so that it shows the new spelling of “Robbins.”
15. Finalize the bibliography so that it matches the MLA style. The Robbins book is a
print publication, and the recording is on CD. (Note that, although you entered the
medium for the recording, you still need to add it to the bibliography.)
