If there is only one entry, title this page “Work Cited.” If a print source does not list a publisher and you can infer who the publisher is, place the publisher’s name in brackets. MLA no longer requires URLs in the Works Cited. Instead, you must write “Web” before the date of access in the entry. This serves as the entry’s publication marker. MLA now requires all sources to have a publication marker. For example, books receive the marker “Print” after the citation. The Works Cited page is a list of all the sources cited in your paper.

Angeli 1 Elizabeth L. Angeli Professor Patricia Sullivan English 624 14 December 2008 Toward a Recovery of Nineteenth Century Farming Handbooks While researching texts written about nineteenth century farming, I found a few authors who published books about the literature of nineteenth century farming, particularly agricultural journals, newspapers, pamphlets, and brochures. These authors often placed the farming literature they were studying into an historical context by discussing the important events in agriculture of the year in which the literature was published (see Demaree, for example). However, while these authors discuss journals, newspapers, pamphlets, and brochures, I could not find much discussion about another important source of farming knowledge: farming handbooks. My goal in this paper is to bring this source into the agricultural literature discussion by connecting three agricultural handbooks from the nineteenth century with nineteenth century agricultural history.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
