Any paper or project you submit must include a bibliography which lists all of the resources you used in researching and preparing your work. The MLA style guide on the right will help you format your bibliography. Your bibliography must be properly indented with the first line of each entry justified to the left margin with other lines in the same entry indented .05 inches. Here is an example:
Daniel, Alexandria. "School Dress Code: Three Girls Talk About How Dress Codes Don't
Have to Stop You from Being a Stylish Individual." Teen Magazine Mar. 2002:57.
Gale-Student Edition. Web. 10 Oct. 2013.

MLA format for Citing Digital Photos
Photographer. Photo Title. Media Type. Source. Date Created. Medium. Date of Access.
Following the above format, a citation would look like this:
Priest, Leslie. WWII: Dwight Eisenhower in Scotland. Digital image.
AP Images. 13 May, 2011. Web. 27 Feb, 2015.
If there is no photographer information available, start with title of the photo.
If you have gotten a photo through a search engine search such as Google images, you must find the website that published the photo and cite the organization responsible for putting it on the internet. Often you must go to the homepage of the site to find the organization name.
The next citation was created for a photo found at this website:
To find what organization put this photo on the internet, delete all of the information after the first / to get to the homepage of this site.
If you do this you will see that the U.S. Army Center of Military History put the information on the web. The citation for a photo found through Google Images would look like this:
Supreme Command in London. Digital image. US Army Center of Military HIstory. Feb, 1944. Web. 25 Feb, 2015.
Note that GOOGLE IS NOT mentioned in the citation!
Remember to alphabetize your list by author's last name. If there is no author listed, use the title and alphabetize as if it were an author name.
