IMPORTANT NOTE: LS Library databases provide complete citations. Just copy the entire MLA 9 citation and paste it into your citation generator:

  • In MyBib: Click More and choose Write/Paste citation (end of list).

  • In NoodleTools: First, choose the type of citation you want. Then, you'll have the option to Quick cite. These directions show more.


Citation means crediting info from a source that you used. To cite, you provide identifying information about the source.

Citation has 2 aspects; you must do BOTH:

  1. Rewrite ideas from the source (change words and sentence structure) OR provide a direct quotation.

  2. Give credit to the source. You must do this even if you put the information in your own words.
