Creating a Citation in MLA 8th edition style

Use the practice template below, to gather and record information about your source.  No matter what type of source you need to cite- paper, digital, books, articles, images websites, videos  You can use this template. Most citations will not have all 9 core elements but you should fill in as many elements as you can. Your goals are to acknowledge the source of information, and to make your audience be able to find that source.
