A Works Cited page should have the same margins as the rest of your paper and should remain double-spaced throughout. Remember, titles of longer works such as novels and plays are underlined or italicized, while short stories, poems, and essays use quotation marks. Always alphabetize your references, and remember that punctuation, such as commas and periods, go inside the quotation marks. For a more complete explanation of how to compile a “Works Cited” page see The Bedford Handbook, the MLA handbook, and the examples that are on reserve.  Remember to number your “Works Cited” page. If you follow the format above, you will have no problems.
