The major styles of citation at MCC are MLA (Modern Language Association) and APA (American Psychological Association). In both styles, you cite your sources twice—once in the text of the paper (in-text citation) and again at the end (on the Works Cited or References pages).
See the MLA and APA pages in this guide. Check with your instructor to verify the style you should use for a class.

Most of the MCC Library's online databases, as well as its eBook collections, provide you with ready-made citations (MLA or APA) that you can cut and paste into your document at the end. Please double check citation formatting in Purdue's Online Writing Lab (OWL) and remember to add in-text citations to your paper, too.
Librarians and tutors in the MCC Learning Commons can help you create citations for sources that you find elsewhere and can review your citations before you submit your work. Librarians can even help you relocate an article for which you have incomplete information.
