format the type of bullet Some are elegant Next if a quotation is long use a block quotation This is a block quotation Use it if a quotation is long ie more than three lines Do not surround the block

the citation against the requirement of 1ampLA style Use short URLs Either limit a URL to the name of the web site plus the first slash or convert the URL using a short bit program There is a link to such a program on the main page of the web site Do not copy URLs directly onto your Works Cited page They will look terrible Instead copy the URL onto a Notepad or Textedit file edit it and then copy it onto your paper 1 do not want to see any underlined or blue links on your papers ltURLs are put inside triangular bracketsgt Remove the link itself
