My teacher told me to alphabetize my sources for ones such as the one below. What does he mean?

"MLA Works Cited: Electronic Sources (Web Publications)." owl. english. purdue. edu. Purdue University. Web. 18 May 2014. owl. english. purdue. edu/owl/resource/747/08/>.

  1. In your Works Cited list, you need to alphabetize the sources by the authors' last names. If there is no author, then you alphabetize by the first word of the title (not counting a, an, or the).

    Read the instructions on this page. Read from Listing author names on down.

  3. But I have done that, right?

  4. It looks right except for < that is missing before the URL. You have the > at the end, but you also need < at the beginning.

  5. Well, I take that back!

    Why do you have the URL in there twice?

  6. Thanks! I think he meant that I have to capitalize the first letter in the website.
