based on MLA style

Any time you use ANY information (whether quoted or in your own words) from a source (source=highlighted information or note card information from a book, magazine, the Internet, etc.), you must put a parenthetical citation BEHIND that information in the text of your paper. If you don't, it is plagiarism.

Examples of MLA Parenthetical Citations

General use citation
Citations when there is no author
More than one author citation
Multivolume work citations
Two or more authors with same last name citation
Work cited in other source citation
Corporate author citation
Concurring multiple sources citation
More than one work by the same author citation
Invisible citations
