MLA/APA & Research Paper Assistance

MLA Works Cited Quick Guide: Update
The Robinson High School English Department and LTC English Department have both adopted MLA 8.  As of May 2018, several of the databases subscriptions have edited their citation generators to reflect the new formatting of MLA 8, but it is inadvisable to use them without checking the newest manual. Here is a style guide link from MLA showing their recommended core template:

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.
