Purdue OWL - The most comprehensive MLA Formatting resource for Works Cited Information and Formats!

     If you have ever required your students to create a works cited page (and I am sure you have), then you have probably already found Purdue University's OWL MLA Formatting & Style Guide Website.  OWL stands for Online Writing Lab.  The site is one of the most comprehensive MLA Formatting & Style resources for works cited information. There are dozens of websites that automatically create works cited pages for you (some I will share later), but Purdue's OWL does a great job of actually explaining the MLA Format.

MLA, APA,  blah blah blah, no matter what format you require your Works Cited Pages in, citing your sources of information for a Research Paper, Essay, Class Project etc.. can be very confusing and frustrating for some students.  Purdue's OWL offers the resources to help understand the MLA Format.

Navigating the site can be a bit confusing, but to quote my collegue and 8th Grade Language Arts Teacher Mr. Harker, "Once you teach the students how to navigate the site, they have all the resources they need to cite any type of resource of information."
