Q. I am always get a bit confused on how to site anything other than books in MLA format.

Answer

Yes, keeping up with all of the details about a citation format such as the MLA style isn't easy, especially as things change and new types of information sources appear.

On the library web site, librarians have put together guides to many of the different kinds of citation formats including MLA 7th edition. To find these guides, go to the library home page (http://www.uhd.edu/library) and in the left-hand menu list you'll see a link to Citing and Writing. Click that link, then click the submenu "Citing Sources". It takes you to this page:

http://www.uhd.edu/library/guides/citingwriting.html

Here you'll find a section with links related to the MLA style. Look at the first two links under the section for the MLA style.

UHD Library Guide to the MLA Citation Style. This takes you to our Research Guide for the MLA style. Click the different tabs in this guide -- you'll see examples of how to cite not only books but also web sites, e-books, and electronic articles (usually found in databases).

If these guides don't cover a source you need to cite, you can view the full MLA citation style book in the library. Ask for it at the desk in the library's 4th floor computer lab.

We hope these resources help you with citing works.
