Here are some handouts (in both .docx and .pdf formats) featuring examples of citations for sources you might find through TCC's Library and the Web. This first handout is for the full works cited page.
Government documents or reports -- from local, county, state, and/or national government departments -- are cited a little differently in both APA and MLA citation styles. For government documents or data, in most cases the author will be the government department responsible for compiling or publishing the data/report/document.
Examples for citing government documents:

MLA fill-in-the-blank web forms ("citation builders")
Plug in the appropriate information in the following "citation builders" and view your citation in MLA format. Successful use depends upon entering the proper information! Compare your results with an MLA style handout (such as the one to the right).
Citation Machine helps students properly credit their sources and create bibliographies. You can choose a manual entry mode, with fill-in-the-blank forms for different types of sources, or enter a URL for auto-filled mode.
