MLA/APA & Research Paper Assistance
MLA Works Cited Quick Guide: Update
In April 2016, MLA published a new style manual which simplifies the former guide. The Robinson High School English Department and LTC English Department have both adopted MLA 8. As of August 2016, none of the databases subscriptions have edited their citation generators to reflect the new formatting of MLA 8 and it is unadvisable to use them without checking the newest manual. Here is a style guide link from MLA showing their recommended core template: https://style.mla.org

MLA/APA Citation Generators -- WARNING: Generators are not 100% accurate.
A citation generator is an electronic way to input information about resources and materials you used for a report or term paper to create a works cited page (or bibliography) in an acceptable writing format with cut-and-paste ease. Use generators at your own risk. Please double-check with the citation guide provided by your instructor.
