Work Cited Information

SHS 09 MLA Style Sheet-

MLA no longer requires the use of URLs in citations. Because Web addresses are not static (i.e. they change often) and because documents sometimes appear in multiple places on the Web (e.g. on multiple databases), MLA explains that most readers can find electronic sources via title or author searches in Internet Search Engines.
