MLA Style Works Cited

In MLA, you have to compose a list of your used works that were referenced. This is called the works cited page and has specific guidelines for how to cite depending on the type of work that it is. Generally, it follows the format of listing the relevant source information in a specific order as shown by the example below:

Generic MLA FormatLast Name, First Name. Title. City of Publication: Publisher, Year of Publication. Medium of Publication.

However, MLA Style has different rules for citing depending on the type of source it is. For example, Supreme Court Cases have no direct "author" to list, so a different style is needed. The samples below illustrate these different usages depending on the type of source.
