For any book or article that has page numbers:
For example: (Rodriguez 42)
This is the most basic example.
If the source has no author, use
For example: ("Using In-Text" 6)
This is a shortened version of the title "Using In-Text Citation in an MLA-Formatted Paper." Use enough of the title so that your reader will be to identify the correct entry on your works cited page.
For video or audio files, include the time stamp in an in-text citation, if one is available, with the author's name or a shortened title.
Author example: (Cuddy 4:27-29)
For full-length documentaries and films, the title is italicized: (Latin American 4:41-48) for Latin American Women Artists: 1915-1995.
For shorter videos and television episodes, the title is placed in quotation marks: ("Four Marks" 12:57-13:01) for the episode "Four Marks" from the television series The Witcher.
If a source, such as a website, does not have page numbers, use
For example: (Williams)
Do not invent page numbers. If the information is printed out and the printer numbered the pages, do not use those numbers.
If a source has two authors, use
For example (Johnson and Seguin 42).
If a source has three or more authors, use
For example (Johnson et al. 53).
