    You need to have each source of information cited in TWO places:

    1. the Works Cited page that is placed after the last page of your paper, and
    2. in parentheses in the text of your paper, immediately after the quotation or paraphrase.

    For example, this would go on the Works Cited page (with proper indentation for the second and following lines):

    Pepin, Ronald E. Literature of Satire in the Twelfth Century. Lewiston: Edwin Mellen P, 1988.

    ... and this would go immediately after the quotation or whatever:
    (Pepin 18)

    The information in parentheses in the text needs to be as brief as possible. That's why there's a Works Cited page – for all the details of the listing.

    If you are using APA guidelines instead of MLA, use this collection of webpages:
