French & Italian: Writing & Citing

Writing Center

The Oberlin College Writing Center offers a dynamic space for students to think critically, be creative, and collaborate with their peers. OCWC is located in the Academic Commons on the main level of Mudd Center. 

RefWorks

ProQuest RefWorks is a citation management tool that helps researchers gather, manage, store and share information, as well as generate citations and bibliographies in a wide variety of styles.  Extensive tutorials are available.  The Write-N-Cite plugin allows you to cite sources while creating a paper in either Word or Google Docs, automatically building your cited references list as you write.

MLA

MLA is most often used in English, Rhetoric, foreign language, and the humanities. Citations are created using both a detailed works cited list appearing at the end of a paper and brief in-text citations that direct readers to particular sources from that reference list. 

The examples and rules described on this page are intended as a quick reference for general MLA citation. For more sources with exhaustive rules, exceptions to rules, and types of sources not described here, see the MLA resources below.
