This is done in the text with a narrative or parenthetical citation, AND a full reference on the When it comes to technology, we “need to be comfortable enough with technology tools and services that we can help point our patrons in the right direction, even if we aren’t intimately familiar with how the device works” (King 11).
In the above example, King’s name is not included in the sentence itself, so his name is in parentheses after the sentence, with 11 for the page number.
This is done to allow the reader to easily locate the full citation that corresponds with the reference in the text.
If, in the Works Cited list, the full reference has the title within quotation marks, include those quotation marks in the narrative MLA in-text citation or reference in parentheses.
The full reference includes the full name of the author, the title of the article, the title of the journal, the volume and issue number, the date the journal was published, and the URL where the article was found.
When a source has two authors, place both authors’ last names in the body of your work.
It may also cause the reader to lose sight of the overall message of the paper or assignment.
Instead of including all last names, only include the last name of the first individual shown on the source.
