Title: Internally Citing Websites!! <<NEED HELP FAST!!!
Post by: Hobo11 on April 09, 2006, 07:29:33 PM
Okay, so I have a question on the correct MLA format for internal citations. I did some searching around on their website, which is completely useless. I'm wondering if anybody out there knows how to internally cite websites. Do you simply open parenthesis, and put the URL inside? On a WS they gave out in class, they said to put the author's name, and then the page number, but that was a general statement, and i don't think it can apply for websites. I have a sample of the outline I'm trying to do. My teacher said to include internal citations in the outline. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! ;D

Ok, you probably know that the names of articles, magazines, books are underlined...so a shot in the dark...and you really wants something more definitive, would be underlined. paranthese not sure??

 I do have an email out to a teacher for confirmation.

;D I did it right! I'm so happy. My teacher said that it was okay, because the MLA handbook or website didn't give clear enough directions. ;D;D;D ;) Thank you anyways though!
