Citation Guide

Research is paramount in education. An important part of that process is how to cite the sources of that research. This guide will help your students cite sources from the Ampers website and content. The guide uses the MLA citation style. Though it may vary from classroom to classroom, MLA is used in most Minnesota social studies classrooms.

Throughout this website, click on the citation icon  to generate a ready-to-use citation you can copy and paste into your work.

HOW MLA WORKS:

When using MLA, the information in the citation should be in the following order:

1. Author.
2. Title of source.
3. Title of container,
4. Other contributors,
5. Version,
6. Number,
7. Publisher,
8. Publication date,
9. Location.
Not all sources will have all of these elements, but if one did, this would be the order in which a citation would be created.
