CMTH 220: Introduction to Film: Citing Sources in MLA Format

This guide will help you find film criticism, biographies of directors, definitions of film genres, and information about the Library's DVD collection.

Citing Sources in MLA Format

The MLA citation format was developed by the Modern Language Association, and is often used by students taking courses in the humanities. If your instructor has asked that you use MLA format, and you need help constructing citations, go to the Library's "Citing Sources" page for assistance.

The NCC Librarians and Learning Center staff have collaborated to bring you a concise guide to using MLA format, which contains examples based on the databases you will find at the NCC Libraries.
