Can someone please tell me the format of a COVER page in MLA. I'm looking in my 6th edition book and I find title page but not cover page. I beleive the title goes 1/3 page down, then may 10 lines or so your name, then at the bottom the class, teacher, and date, but I don't know if you put a page number on the cover page. Thanks in advance

    Thanks...that's one of the ones I found but some also show a page number. I don't know which is really right, and my paper is due tomorrow and can't ask the teacher.

    Did your instructor specifically tell you to include a cover page? Almost all MLA-formatted documents don't need one; that's why you don't see an example or any directions in the MLA Handbook.

    If your instructor said to include one, then of course, you do. If the instructor said nothing about a cover page, it's best to check or leave it off.

    The cover page would NOT be numbered.

    THANKS for all your help. I was going nuts only finding title page in my book. This was her instructions:
    Page 1- Cover page
    Pages 2-5 Main paper (double spaced, 12 size font)
    Page 6 - References
    Thanks again

    If you are using Word, you can set it to automatically number the pages in the footer -- and you can set it to leave the number off the first page! Have you found those little tools yet?

    Yes Thanks
