    Referencing question

    Hi,

    I'm using the MLA style for quotation. I checked their site but I don't seem to find how to use online references inside my text. Do I have to put the URL next to the quotation?

    Thanks

    The author's name in brackets will suffice.

    In-text Citation

    For its citation style, the Modern Language Association uses an in-text reference which directs the reader to a list of Works Cited at the end of the paper. For printed works, the in-text reference includes the author's last name or a short title (if there is no author listed) and page number.

    If there is no author named, use a short title from the article in the parenthetical reference and optionally refer to the organization in the text:

    The Gerber Baby Food company notes that for the first three to five days of breast feeding, a woman's body "will produce a substance called colostrum. This thick, yellowy substance is a milk rich in antibodies . . ." ("Newborn Feeding").
