Citing Sources     [text-only version for printing]
Most Rio Hondo College instructors prefer that you use the style recommended by the Modern Language Association (MLA) when you prepare your research papers. The MLA style is concerned with the mechanics of writing, such as punctuation, quotation, and documenting the sources you used.

The Works Cited section appears at the end of the research paper and should list all the works that you have mentioned in your text. For a quick reference to the basic formats for citing your print and electronic sources, choose one of the categories below. Consult a reference librarian for additional help.
