MLA Citation Style is used at West Catholic and it is important for a number of reasons:
- Citing your sources gives credit where credit is due.
- Proper citation makes your arguments more credible.
- It shows that you have properly researched your topic.
- Citation creates a foundation to which others can build from to make even greater breakthroughs.
- Readers can find other sources and original works for themselves.
Some great sites for learning about the MLA Citation Style and generating MLA formats are listed below:
- OWL Citation Site – University of Purdue
- Citation Fox – University of Albany
- EasyBib – Citation Creator

Note: Students should always verify the formatting for any MLA Citation which is created by a citation generator. (Sometimes additional modifications / corrections will need to be made)
