Sample MLA Works Cited List

A standard MLA paper requires a works cited list. This is the list of sources you used in your research. It is similar to a bibliography.1. Type "Works Cited" one inch from the top of your page. This measurement is pretty standard for a word processor, so you shouldn't have to make any page set-up adjustments--just start typing.

2. Type in the information for each source, double spacing between the works. Alphabetize the works by author. If there is no author or editor mentioned, use the title (as in the last example on the list).

3. Once you have a complete list, you will format so that you have hanging indents. To do this: highlight the list, then go to Edit and find the command for Hanging.
