MLA Citations – Audio

Notes: Inclusion and placement of conductor, composer, or performer will depend on importance to your work. List a conductor or composer first if the focus of your work is on that person(s). Ask a professor or librarian if you’re unsure. Leave out the song or track title if the citation is for the whole album or other larger compilation.
