Citing with MLA

For this class you are required to use the MLA style of citation. Examples of how to cite various resources in the MLA style can be found through the OWL@Purdue.  Also, the UGA Library keeps Citation Style Guide web pages with examples of how to cite the most common types of resources using the most common styles (APA, Chicago, MLA, and more!).

Here is an example of how you would cite an article from Academic Search Complete:
Bass, Dorothy C. "Christian Formation In And For Sabbath Rest." Interpretation: A Journal Of Bible & Theology 59.1 (2005): 25-37. Academic Search Complete. Web. 3 Feb. 2012.

Recommended Resources

For the Analytical Timeline written assignment, you are required to use at least 3 outside sources in addition to course materials and lectures.  These sources should come from either: The Encyclopedia of Religion or GALILEO@UGA’s JSTOR or Academic Search Complete databases.  These sources should be used to back up your argument and cited (using parenthetical citations according to MLA) where appropriate.

Encyclopedia of Religion
Electronic version of the classic, 16-volume Encyclopedia of Religion, considered the standard, scholarly encyclopedia for the study of religion and religious beliefs worldwide.  (Print version available in the Main Library Reference Room, Call Number: Main Ref BL31 .E46 2005)

If using the online version of the Encyclopedia of Religion for your assignment....

  • Click the link to the online eTable of Contents and/or eBook index to browse for articles / topics of interest
  • When you use the eTable of Contents, you must select the volume that you want to search first.  This is the virtual version of picking a volume from the shelf, and lets you browse through, seeing everything in alphabetical order.

JSTOR
A full text archive of back issues of core scholarly journals from across the disciplines (note: articles from the last 5 years are not accessible through JSTOR, so if you want current journal literature use Academic Search Complete).
