These are NOT Legitimate Collegiate Sites!!

Also remember that Turnitin will highlight any sentence you use from these sites. By using any of these sites in your essay, you are acknowledging that you are willing to accept a failing grade on the essay and possibly in the class.

There are ONLY TWO online sites you are allowed to use for this research paper:
JSTOR
MLA International
Here are the things you need to remember when writing a Works Cited:
The page is always title Works Cited, not Works Cited page.
The Works Cited always begins at the top of a new page, not the bottom of your last page.
The Works Cited list is always in alphabetical order by the primary author’s last name.
The entries are placed in a hanging indent so that the author’s name sticks out and the text underneath is recessed.
If you use a quote in your paper, it must be in the Works Cited.
A translation for Works Cited is “List of sources I used in my paper.”
If you did not use a source in your paper, it may not go on your Works Cited.
Using Bibliography or Resources to title this page will be a 40 point deduction.
