2 / 4

After the quote, include the author's last name and the page number within the parenthetical documentation ["quote" (Author's Last Name #).].

ex.  It has long been believed that "everyone is great" (Smith 2).

However, if you use the author's name as a part of the quote integration itself use only the page number in the parenthetical documentation [Author's Last Name "quote" (#).]:

ex.  According to the Smith, "everyone is great" (2). However, recently people "are beginning to doubt their own happiness" (4).

Or if the quotation before mentions the author's name, you only need to mention the page number in the parenthetical documentation:

ex.  According to the Smith, "everyone is great" (2).

If you don't have a last name, use the first major word in the article's title or the book's title:

"quote" ("Article" #).  or  "quote" (Book #).

ex1.  According to many people, "everyone is great" ("Love" 2).

ex2.  According to many people, "everyone is great" (Love 2).

If you don't have a page number for an online source, use the paragraph number.  You will use the following pattern a lot for online sources:

"quote" ("Article" par.#).

ex.  According to the article, "everyone is great" ("Love" par. 2).

We will talk about all of the other variations next class, but these should get you started.
