The information on this handout is derived from the 7th edition of the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers and other sources. For more examples, see the MLA Handbook, 7th edition, Section 5.7

Internal Citation

For Images/Audiovisual Media in Document

Cite using the guidelines on the standard MLA Citation page.

For Images/Audiovisual Media in Slideshow

Place either artist-title or URL of image into small text box on the slide using small font (suggested: 8).

Works Cited

Image and other audiovisual media citations should appear on the Works Cited list at the end of the paper. Entries should be alphabetized by first word of entry and alphabetized with the print and electronic references on the list. Do not list images separately. When using images in a presentation such as a slideshow, prepare a Works Cited list on a separate slide at the end of the presentation. Use the same guidelines listed on FLITE’s standard MLA Citation page
