Example of the MLA Format
The primary format used here is the MLA (Modern Language Association) format. These are examples of how to create citations for several different types of resources using the MLA format.
When any citation uses two or more lines, a hanging indentation is used to place the second and third lines under the first line. To create a hanging indentation in Microsoft Word, go to the Format tab at the top of the page. Choose Paragraph. When the Paragraph Page appears, in the middle of the page, locate the item "Special". Click on the drop down tab and choose "Hanging". Click on OK.
