• CREATING YOUR WORKS -CITED PAGE

    To create your works-cited page, first format each of your sources, then list them in alphabetical order. The purpose of a works-cited page is to help other people find the sources you used. Not every source will match these formats exactly, but if you give as much detail as possible, your works-cited page will do its job.
