Another question regarding works cited in MLA style.
I would like to put 2 photos in my work
How do I do that? I cannot find anywhere how to put photos in MLA style.
Hold on while I look things up.
Photos are referred to as figures. (Charts and tables are slightly different.) Read all in the following linked webpages carefully and follow all directions.
Repost if you still have questions.
What confuses me is where do I put the source page? Do I have to create a new works cited page just for images?
I'll check your answer first ;)
Ok so I have done the following:
I inserted see fig.1 after the sentence which talks about the photo
Then I inserted the photo and wrote underneath:
A pile of Bison skulls from the mid-1870s
Burton Historical Collection/Detroit Public Library
Should I put the source in my works cited list or something else?
Let me know if one or the other of those linked webpages doesn't answer all your questions.
(And no, you don't need a separate works cited page for figures.)
I would put the text which refers to the figure AFTER the figure itself.
Be sure to read and follow ALL instructions, 1 - 4, in the ehow.com article -- and the information under Tips & Warnings.
Let me know what you decide to do.
