Knowing how to cite Internet sources on a Works Cited page is imperative. Resources that once would have been searched for among library shelves are now readily available online, and the format for citing them has changed as well. The Works Cited page is a reference page utilized by the Modern Language Association. The MLA format is used for writing papers within the humanities and liberal arts disciplines.
