At the end of your paper, you must provide an alphabetical listing of all the works you have cited in your paper (“Works Cited”). This requirement includes both work you have actually quoted and work you have summarized or paraphrased. The information is arranged alphabetically according to the author’s last name or (when there is no author identified) by title.
