The Research Process: A Guide for OCC Students: 5b. MLA Formatting

This guide will walk you through the research process for a standard research paper.


The OCC Library has a website guide devoted to citing MLA correctly. Use it if you need more information!

Citation Generators

A word of caution: Citation generators are only as accurate as the information that you put in them. If you don't know how to find the publisher name or the difference between a journal and article title, citation generators usually will not give you correct citations. Use these with caution, until you are comfortable reading and writing citations on your own.
