MLA citation style help

Hi all..

I was surfing to find some template that could help in MLA citation style. Fortunately I found one. I missed the link, so am pasting the contents as under. This might be of some help to others.


Student second name and page number to be right aligned in header

<Student Name>

<Name and Section # of course>

<Instructor Name>


Insert Full Title of the Assignment

            From here you start off the assignment and each paragraph is indented by pressing a simple tab key when starting a new paragraph.

            Heading 1

            Guess what is the noticeable difference? You just noticed! Headings are also indented and underlined simultaneously. Do not have any formatting in the paper such as having any text bold or italics.

            There is no gap between the paragraphs. The most important part is the in text citations which uses Author, Page style where citations are listed by author(s) last name and page number range. If you’ve completely rephrased something you took from a source then you should cite like this (Haris, 21).

Subheading 1

Do not bold, italicize or underline the subheading.

Works Cited

Next page is the referencing page that is here known as works cited. Please note that references should be in alphabetical order with books coming first, followed by websites. Try placing as many books as you can. Notice that the references have hanging indents from the second line onwards and are not numbered.

A Book

Author’s last name, first name initial. Title of the book. Book Edition. City of Publishing: Publisher. (Date published).

A Magazine or Newspaper Article

Author’s last name, first name initial. “Article Title.” Magazine or newspaper name. (Date published): page numbers of article.

A Web Page

Organization/Website/Author Last Name, First Name Initial. “Web page title” Sponsoring organization or Home Page. Date Accessed.

Conservation Certificate Drama

So, y'all probably know this, but still. This was sent out on padg this morning:

As many of you know, the Conservation Certificate of Advanced Study program of the School of Information at the University of Texas at Austin is in jeopardy.  Since 1992, the program has been successful in obtaining external funding to support a range of program activities, including key full-time and adjunct faculty positions, conservation lab supplies and equipment, student internships, doctoral fellowships, visiting lecturers, and conferences.  Unfortunately, the program's support from NEH, which has long funded the two conservation instructor positions (the backbone of the conservation program's curriculum), will end August 31, 2010.  Without these positions, the Kilgarlin Center for Preservation of the Cultural Record will not be able to offer the Conservation Certificate program.

No conservator students were accepted for this upcoming academic year so that an in-depth program review could take place.  That review is in its final stages and has mapped a transformative future for the program.  Grant, foundation, and private funding are beckoning but will require the University of Texas at Austin to demonstrate evidence of institutional support.   The School of Information has constructed wonderful new conservation labs in its new facility (http://www.ischool.utexas.edu/about/move.php), but they won't have a single conservator student to put in them if they don't have funding in place by October 2009 for the coming years.  Funding for the two instructor positions must be stabilized immediately.

Your assistance is requested in the form of letters to Vice President and Provost Stephen W. Leslie that request University support of these two conservation instruction positions and that document the program's importance to the field.  University funding for even one of these positions will enhance the Kilgarlin Center's ability to attract external foundation or private funding for the other position.  Many of you are alums, many others employ Kilgarlin Center grads, and nearly all of you are familiar with the Center's singular role as a library and archives conservation education program.  Thank you for your support.

Hard copy letters can be mailed to:

Steven W. Leslie
Executive Vice President and Provost
University of Texas at Austin
1 University Station, G1000
Austin, Texas 78712

Please email copies of these letters to Dean Dillon and Ellen Cunningham-Kruppa:

Andrew P., Dillon
Dean, School of Information

Ellen Cunningham-Kruppa
Director, Kilgarlin Center for Preservation of the Cultural Record

(no subject)

Hello everyone!

I posted two posts below about GRE scores. Well... I got accepted and I will be starting at the iSchool this fall!
I know this community is pretty quiet, but I was hoping someone had suggestions for which classes to take my first semester. I'm trying to get an idea of what my schedule will be like, and how I can fit in my job. I know there are some required courses, but I'm not sure if I should take those all at once. I'm hoping to go the Archives route, so any advice on courses to take for someone interested in Archival Studies would be great!
I would also appreciate any advice regarding grad school in general and UT as a whole. I've lived in Austin for 6 years now, so I'm pretty familiar with the city, but not with the UT campus.

Thanks in advance!

statement of pupose

Hi everyone,

I'm just about ready to send off my application, and I can't find length requirements for the statement of purpose anywhere on the site. Most places look for around 500 words, but I don't want to make any ill-advised assumptions for something so important. Can anyone clear this up for me? I know I could always call on Monday, but I'm antsy...

GRE scores

Hello everyone, newbie here. I'm hoping to put in my application for the Fall 2009 semester for the ischool Master's program. I just took the GRE this past weekend and didn't score as high as I would've hoped. Do you all think a 570 verbal and 660 math is good enough to be accepted? Thanks in advance for your input!

One of those questions..

This is one of those questions people don't talk about or ask, but since there just is NO information about it, I'm asking.

What are the benefits (that is, PAY) for being a teaching assistant? I have no clue how it works, but I'd like to plan my semester budget.

Blog call

Do you maintain an iSchool, Library, or Information Science related blog? Are you blogging about your capstone? If so, I want to know about it.

I'm starting up a word press site for iSchool blogs. I figure that there are a lot of blogs out there that iSchool students and alums are maintaining that could be of interest to the iSchool community as a whole. If you know of one or two or three, please let me know at utischoolblogs@gmail.com. I'm not going to put any names on the site, just links.
