Some quick hits about MLA Citations:

Authors names are the entire name rather than just initials.  If there is more than one author, first author is last name, first name and next authors are first name, last name.

Words in titles are capitalized except for words such as a, an, the, to, but, or, for, etc...

Only the city of publication is listed, not the state.

The medium of the item is provided.  Print, Web, DVD, etc...
