Direct Quotations & Paraphrasing

In-Text Citations

After a quote, add the first entry in Works Cited — usually the author's last name and a page reference. "The in-text citation should direct the reader unambiguously to the entry in your works-cited list…" (page numbers used in this guide indicate where the topic is found in the MLA Handbook).

Example: "The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog" (Seuss 54).

If using the author's name in your text, do not include it in the parentheses.

Example: In his scholarly study, Dr. Seuss observed that "the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog" (54).

If you use more than one work by the same author, abbreviate the title to a noun phrase.

Example: "The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog" (Seuss, Fox 117-118).

If more than one author has the same last name, add their first initial, if needed, use the first name.

Example: "The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog" (D. Seuss 55).

If two authors wrote the work, list both separated by and, if three or more, list the first author followed by et al

Example: "The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog" (Seuss and Johnson 116).

If no pagination information is available, but paragraphs are numbered, include that information.

Example: "The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog" (Seuss, par. 56).

If no pagination information is available and paragraphs are not numbered, the work must be cited only in its entirety, but you can include words in your text that indicate about where to find the quote.

Example: In the first third of his article, Seuss mentioned that "the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog."

Note: "Identifying the source in your text is essential for nearly every kind of borrowing…quotations…facts…paraphrased ideas" (MLA 57).

Performances & Personal Communications

Personal communications may be private letters, memos, non-archived electronic communications, personal interviews, etc. Because they do not provide recoverable data, they are not included in the reference list. The same is true of live performances.

Instead, you should cite these sources in your text with the initial and last name of the communicator and as exact a date as possible.

Samples:

Narrative E.-M. Paradis (personal communication, August 8, 2019)

Parenthetical (T. Nguyen, personal communication, February 24, 2020)

If you are citing a recording or archived copy of the performance or personal communication, these forms are recoverable and should be referenced in your Works Cited list as a video, online forum post, tape recording, etc.

How to Use the Library

Finding Journal Articles

Article & Journal Searching

To find articles published in periodicals (magazines, newspapers, journals, etc.), you will need to use a database. Databases can be multi-disciplinary (EBSCO, Proquest) or subject specific (ERIC, PSYCInfo). They can be searched in numerous ways: by author, title of the article or periodical, by keyword, or subject.

How to Select a Database

Click the "Library Databases" link below. You will find descriptions of database contents printed next to the database link.

Full-Text Available or Citation/Abstract Only?

If you need to be able to read the article immediately, be sure to click the "Full Text Only" box near the search box.

Locating a Known Article

If you are looking for a known article (you already have the citation from a reference book, bibliography, another article, etc.), try:

  • Use the A-to-Z Journal List link below - Search by journal title to see if a particular journal is fulltext and to be directed to that full text content
  • Search the library catalog by journal title to find out if a particular journal title (magazine, journal, newspaper, etc.) is available in print. Print periodicals are arranged alphabetically by title on the 1st floor of the library. Older issues can be found on the 2nd Floor.
  • Do a search on the web. Although most journal articles are not available for free, sometimes you may find what you are looking for.
  • If you cannot locate the full-text in print or electronic format, you may request the item using the library's interlibrary loan service.

Resources

General Databases to Start Research

  • Scholarly, multi-disciplinary full-text databases accessed in one search.
  • The accepted authority on English language meaning, history, and pronunciation.
  • General index of articles on nearly every topic.
