NOTE: Word doesn't offer the most recent version of MLA for creating citations. The most recent version of MLA is the 8th edition.
When you add a new citation to a document, you also create a new source that will appear in the bibliography.
For example, your source might be a book, a report, or a Web site.
To add more information about a source, click the Show All Bibliography Fields check box.
NOTE: In MLA, a bibliography is called a Works Cited page.
You can create a bibliography at any point after you insert one or more sources in a document. If you don't have all of the information that you need about a source to create a complete citation, you can use a placeholder citation, and then complete the source information later.
Note Placeholder citations do not appear in the bibliography.
