MLA In-text Citations: The Basics

  • Any source information that you provide in-text must correspond to the source information on the Works Cited page. More specifically, whatever signal word or phrase you provide to your readers in the text, must be the first thing that appears on the left-hand margin of the corresponding entry in the Works Cited List.

The citation for the Works Cited List for your article is:

"Happy Endings." Short Stories for Students. Ed. Jennifer Smith. Vol. 13. Detroit: Gale Group, 2001. 149-162. Gale Virtual Reference Library. Web. 20 Feb. 2014.
