    Helpful Hints

    1. Use 1" margins and center the title Works Cited. DO NOT bold, underline, capitalize every letter or italicize the words Works Cited. Font size must be 12 point throughout the page.
    2. Alphabetize entries in the list of works cited by the author’s last name. If the author’s last name is unknown, alphabetize by title, ignoring any initial A, An, or The.  
    3. DO NOT number entries.
    4. The Works Cited page must be doubled spaced.  
    5. Begin the first line of each entry all the way to the left. Keep typing until you run out of room, when your cursor goes to the next line you have to create a hanging indent. Any line after the first line will need a hanging indent.
