On page 128 of the MLA Handbook (available in the library), the authors give two suggestions:

  1. Include brief citations on each slide that uses borrowed materials and add a works-cited list on a slide at the end.
  2. Offer printed copies of your works-cited list to your audience.

Since there are no other MLA specific format guidelines for your PowerPoint, please talk to your professor about his or her expectations for your presentationThis slideshow may provide you with some talking points.

If you would like general information about PowerPoint, the library offers books, eBooks, and articles.  To find resources, please search the Multi-Search or the Online Library Catalog. You can also find PowerPoint video tutorials in our Atomic Learning database.
