How to Set Up MLA Format in Word

This is a quick video tutorial for setting up a Word 2010 document in MLA format.

A lot of professors grade strictly when it comes to format of an essay. Unfortunately, students are often so busy focusing on writing their paper (at 3:00 AM the night before it’s due) that they don’t have time to worry about properly formatting it.

This video shows how to set up the typeface, font size, line spacing, and paragraph spacing for MLA format. It also covers how to set up the initial heading and page numbers.

If you need to know how to set up a Works Cited page or format citations for webpages, articles from databases, or books, I have another video that covers those topics:

Hopefully this video will help. Thank you for watching!
