In-text citations are supposed to help the reader find the full reference in the works cited page, you know... But yes, you want to make sure. Well, here it is "Electronic and online sources are cited just like print resources in references cited in the text. If an online source lacks numbering, omit numbers from the parenthetical references. If a source includes fixed page numbers or section numbering, such as numbering of paragraphs (pars.), cite the relevant numbers." Example: "Online source with numbered paragraphs: (Fox, pars. 4-5)" If you want more comprehensive rules, visit this site http://www.dianahacker.com/resdoc/p04_c08_s1.html. The page is specifically for the in-text citation you want. I think the thing you're missing is that they're cited in the same way as print sources... But I'll leave you to be the judge. Visit that site.

Bambie Originally Answered: MLA essay format: Does the works cited page count as part of the essay length?
Your numbers aren't adding up. You should send him an email even if he doesn't respond. If you send it and he doesn't respond, you can blame him, unless he clearly defined the assignment in other ways. If you just forgot what he said, then you should contact some classmates to clarify their understanding. Normally, a 6 page MLA essay would be 6 pages plus any works cited. So 2 pages of works cited would make an 8 page paper for a 6 page essay. It makes no sense at all for an MLA paper to have 6 pages or 2 pages.

As a general rule the works cited page does not count towards the total number pages. It is in itself a stand alone. So, no it won't be counted as the seventh page.

I think that in your second reference you mean six, not two. Just write a five page essay, add one full page of citations, and be safe. If he had required foot notes and not end notes, you would have exactly six pages and can respectfully mention that point if you have a problem. Be sure that the fifth page and the citation page are full pages even if that means using extra citations.
