English 1302 mla exercise #2 using electronic resources

  Direction:

For items #1-10 below, use the information provided to locate the source in either the college

Library Catalog or the Online Databases. Once you find the source, provide a citation for it in the

proper MLA format (that is, as the source would appear in a Works Cited listing).

Before starting, take note:

• The citations provided in the Library Catalog and the Online Databases are often outdated,

incomplete, or simply incorrect. DO NOT copy and paste info that you find. Build your

own citation, following the guides and models.

• Be sure to follow the new 8th edition of the MLA Handbook. The Purdue OWL provides a

very detailed and helpful guide to MLA format:

https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/research_and_citation/mla_style/mla_style_introduction.html

• Newspapers, magazines, and scholarly journals are often referred to as periodicals in

reference guides, such as the Purdue OWL.

• Volume and issue information is only given in citations for scholarly journals, not for

newspapers or magazines; for those, you simply give the date of publication.

• All electronic items (those freely online or through a subscription database) should be

followed by the date that you accessed the materials (“Accessed [day month year]”).

• For the items below in EBSCO databases, please also use this generic URL:

www.ebscohost.com.

• For the items below in EBSCO databases, you must list both the name of the database used

and the publisher of the database (unfortunately, the Purdue OWL does not clarify this).

Here is an example of how that looks in a complete citation:

Reich, Robert. “The Political Roots of Widening Inequality.” American Prospect, vol. 26,

no. 2, Spring 2015, pp. 26-30. Social Sciences Full Text, EBSCOhost,

www.ebscohost.com. Accessed 2 June 2018.

search engine features, find and create MLA citations for the following sources.
