Works Cited Page Format
- If a citation takes up more than one line on your document, the second and any subsequent lines should be indented.
- Entries should be organized alphabetically by the authors' last names. If a work has no author, the title should be used instead.
- If you have multiple works by the same author, list the author's name in the first entry and in following entries use three hyphens (---).
For more information on formatting your works cited page, see pages 219-226 in the MLA Handbook.
