Essay 2 Works Cited: 5) Do not use APA—if you used the citation function to copy the entry from a database, you may have chosen the wrong one. Do not call the page “References.” That is an APA term. The first letter of each word needs to be capitalized in an MLA works cited entry. NEVER use the year in the citation.
