Every time you use a quotation or fact or idea that comes from your research, you must provide a citation to show where that quotation, fact, or idea came from.
Your citation will have two parts:
1. In-text Citations
2. Works Cited Page
The In-text citations give a small amount of information right after the quotation or paraphrase in your essay. The Works Cited page should be on a separate page (unless your instructor tells you otherwise), and includes a detailed list of all the resources you used.
In-text citations usually have two pieces of information: the author's last name, and the page number of the information or quotation you're using. If there is no author or no page number, you must follow MLA rules for in-text citation.

Your Works Cited page should have entries for each resource you have used. Include detailed information on each resource, in the correct format.
