How does it support your research question?
What makes it reliable?
For much of the research that you do at Gettysburg College, professors will request that you use scholarly articles (from peer-reviewed journals, rather than popular magazines and websites.) If you need help telling the difference, see this guide on the library website.
An online guide to MLA citation style is also available via Purdue University's OWL website.
Use The MLA Style Center's Interactive Practice Template to help build your works-cited citation.
To help with formatting citations, you may find tools like Zotero or Refworks useful.
