Works Cited Page

A Works Cited page shows your instructor which publications you used in your research.

  • The page is titled "Works Cited", which is centered at the top of the page.
  • The entire page, like the rest of your paper in MLA citation format, is in New York Times Roman font and 11-point type.
  • Citations are alphabetized by author.
  • Citations appear in a Hanging Indent, the reverse of what we usually see in publications where the first line is indented.

To create a Hanging Indent in Word or Google Drive, click on the small arrow in the lower right-hand corner of the Paragraph section. From there, choose Indentation in the middle of the dialog box. Choose Hanging from the drop-down menu under Special, as illustrated below:
