Citation Guide: Modern Language Association (MLA)

Citing Sources within Your Document

MLA style uses parentheses for in-text citations to acknowledge the use of another author’s words, facts, and ideas. When you refer to a source within your text, provide the author’s last name and specific page number(s) – if the source is paginated. Your reader can then go to the works cited list at the end of your document to find a full citation.
