MLA style essay formatting: margins, font, line spacing, header, info block, title, indentation, block quote, Works Cited. YouTube video, 10:00 min. Published on Jan 10, 2011. Transcript of Video: Seventh Edition of MLA Style Essay Format.
All Works Cited entries should be typed double-spaced. Second and subsequent lines indented.
In order to keep this Web page short and more mobile friendly, SINGLE rather than DOUBLE SPACE is used here with no indentation for second and subsequent lines. Please see Works Cited Sample Page for a properly double-spaced and indented Bibliography or Works Cited page. Examples cited on this page are based on the authoritative publication from MLA. If the example you are seeking is not included here, please consult the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers 7th Edition.
Format for entries: A single space is used after any punctuation mark. When dividing a long word or URL onto two lines, put hyphen, slash, or period at the end of the line. Do not add a hyphen to a URL that was not originally there. Never begin a new line with a punctuation mark. Double-space all lines in a bibliography entry. Do not indent the first line of a bibliography entry, indent second and subsequent lines 5 spaces, or 1/2" (1.25 cm) from the left margin. Please see Chapter 11. Guidelines on How to Write a Bibliography for details.
When writing a bibliography, remember that the purpose is to communicate to the reader, in a standardized manner, the sources that you have used in sufficient detail to be identified. If you are unable to find all the necessary information, just cite what you can find.

When using MLA style, note that there is no period after the month. The period in "Jan." is for the abbreviation of January.

Where a newspaper title does not indicate the location of publication, add the city of publication between square brackets, e.g. Daily Telegraph [London]. Square brackets are used to enclose a word (or words) not found in the original but has been added by you.
