    Had to write a paper on John Brown for US History. I haven't done a works cited page since my eleventh grade year and now I'm a sophomore in college. We have to use MLA format and I used an online resource but hopefully some intelligent people can make sure everything is on the up and up.

    1.[FONT=&quot] [/FONT]Reynolds, David. John Brown, Abolitionist. 2nd ed. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2005. 1-94. Print.

    It might possibly have to be in alphabetical order? I don't remember.

    I'm writing on five books, two ready, though none released yet.
    I use almost the same format, ordered as "Author, Title, Publisher, Release/Print Date, Media Type (print/digital) and Availability.

    I don't know the format you must use, but your approach looks fully correct.
    The only thing I might change would be "Print": Maybe change this to 2 or 3 types, depending on was the reference in printed form, still in-print, out of print, or available electronically from this or that library.
    Like i.e.: Print, available. Out of Print. Library of Somewhere, digital.

    Oh, and I grabbed one your book titles, looks useful for my book on geopolitics ;)
    Where and when will your work be available? I wanna read it..
