For fourth grade research, we are using the MLA Bibliography format. Your bibliography should be set up with a “hanging indent”, which means that the first line of each entry is lined up with the left edge of the text and any extra lines for that entry should be indented (the reverse of a normal paragraph). The entries should be alphabetical by the first word of the entry.

Book Format:

Author Last Name, First Name. Book Title. City: Publisher Name, Year.

Website Format:

Author Last Name, First Name. Website Name. Article Name. Publication Date. Date you accessed the Website. Full web address.

Note: Try hard to find all of the information you can for your source, but if something is missing (like the Publication Date or Author Name for a website) skip it.
