Yes, MLA Style requires the use of a running head in research papers. The running head is positioned in the upper right corner of the page and consists of your last name, followed by a space and the page number (see page 187-188 of the MLA Handbook, 7th edition, for specific instructions).

For information on how to format the running head, see Creating MLA and APA Headers in Microsoft Word.
