How to make a Works Consulted Page
(From American Memory Database)
|MULTI-VOLUME WORK||WEB PAGES|
|Gale Student Resource||SAMPLE WORKS CITED PAGE|
NOTE: There has been a revision in the MLA style. Please look carefully at the examples as many of them have changed. For instance the type of medium is now included and the use of url's for Web sites are no longer included.
A Works Consulted page should always be found at the end of any paper if you have used resources outside your own brain! A Works Consulted page provides the information necessary for a reader to locate and be able to read any sources you used in your research.
Basic Rules for Works Consulted pages:
Italicize the names of books, plays, poems published as books, periodicals (newspapers, magazines, and journals), Web sites, online databases, film, television and radio broadcasts, compact discs, audiocassettes, and works of visual art.
Titles in Quotation Marks
Use quotation marks for the titles of articles, essays, stories and poems published within larger works, chapters of books, pages in Web sites, and individual episodes of television and radio broadcasts.

You must indicate to your readers not only what works you used in writing your paper but also what you took from each source and where in the work you found this material. Usually the author's last name and a page reference are enough to identify the source and the location from which you borrowed the material.
Medieval Europe was a place both of "raids, pillages, slavery, and extortion" and of "traveling merchants, monetary exchange, towns if not cities, and active markets in grain" (Townsend 10).
The paranthetical reference "(Townsend 10)" indicates that the quotations come from page 10 of a work by Townsend. Since you provided the last name, readers will be able to locate the source in your list of works cited at the end of your paper.
