Imagine that (in a temporary lapse from sanity) you have written a paper called "The Shoelace in History," and you have made use of the following sources.
Compile your list of works cited, and, paying close attention to proper MLA format, copy this exercise into Word and prepare a Works Cited page. (Warning: Some listings contain irrelevant information that you will not use in your works-cited list.)
Remember, this system does not allow for underlining--so watch for the _underline mark_ to indicate information that should appear underlined.
