The MLA Handbook is the rulebook for MLA format. You may need to refer back to it as you write your Communications ENC 1101 research paper. This book is available in Reference LB 2369 .G53 2016.
Here's another good book on writing from Melbourne Campus Library.
WARNING! Use EXTREME CAUTION when citation information is provided FOR you by the databases! Citations are NEVER GUARANTEED to be 100% correct! Many of the databases will display citation help. In EBSCO databases, access the citation help using the "Cite" button on the toolbar.
The MLA citation above pulled directly from the database's cite button lists the author's name in all caps. This is not correct MLA format. This example citation also puts an ampersand "&" in the title of the journal. The proper name of the journal uses the word "and." The CORRECT citation is as follows:
Grosse, Andrew M., et al. "Nest Guarding in the Gopher Tortoise (Gopherus Polyphemus)." Chelonian
Conservation and Biology, vol. 11, no. 1, June 2012, pp. 148-51. Academic Search Complete.
