MLA Style is a set of rules for research papers, and requires that sources are cited with an in-text citation in the body of the paper and in a full citation in the Works Cited list at the end of the paper.
For templates and citation examples, refer to the MLA Citation Guide.
There are two ways to integrate sources into the text of your assignment: quoting directly or paraphrasing.
