By citing your sources, you:
MLA Style has changed a bit with the 8th edition to be more flexible and clear. With respect to citing, instead of rigid rules, the new guidelines simply focus on giving your readers the information they need to find your sources.
Please consult the MLA Handbook even if you use a program to create citations for you. The citations created by these programs frequently are close, but not exact. Print copies of the MLA Handbook are available in the library.
Some citations include a DOI (digital object identifier) which can be very helpful for finding an article again later. If you add https://doi.org/ to the front of the DOI, you will create a link to the article. For example if the DOI is 10.1080/2331186X.2017.1371822 , the link would be https://doi.org/10.1080/2331186X.2017.1371822
If you are off campus, but the libraries have access to the article (and it is not available to the public), you would need to add https://ezproxy.butler.edu/login?url= to the front of the link in order to get prompted to log in with your Butler credentials. The link for the example above would then be: https://ezproxy.butler.edu/login?url=https://doi.org/10.1080/2331186X.2017.1371822
This may be more than you want to know, so just let me know if you have any trouble accessing an article.
