How do I cite my sources? 

Each of the library tools typically will create MLA style citations for you. Each tool is a bit different - look for "Cite", "Citation Tools", "Format Citation", and "Citation Examples".

If that doesn't help - check out the library's list of websites that help with citation styles.
