Citing your Zine

Here are some tips for formatting your citations using MLA Style:

  • In MLA style, a pamphlet, zine, or brochure is cited like a book.
  • If your zine has no author, or if the author is "anonymous," begin your citation with the title of the zine. 
  • If your zine is part of a numbered series, indicate the issue number.


General Form

Last, First M. or Organization. Zine Title. Publisher, Year.

Helpful Tips for Citing in Noodle Tools:

  •    When citing articles from Oxford Art Online, choose Reference Source as your citation type in the drop-down menu of Noodle Tools.
  •    When you select the first result in Oxford Art, it is generally from an encyclopedia titled "Grove Art Online" -- this is what you would put as the name of the encyclopedia when creating your citation.


  • Put in as much information as you can - but when citing reference sources in Oxford Art Online you may not be given page numbers, place of publication, date of publication, or author.


  • When citing an artwork image from ArtStor or Oxford Art or Heilbrunn you will choose Work of Visual Art as your citation type in the drop-down menu of Noodle Tools.


Always remember to provide citation information for any images or other sources you use.
