Use of Endnotes or Footnotes
MLA style allows two types of endnotes or footnotes.
- Content notes providing supplementary information, explanations, and comments that would interrupt the readability of the text. In general, avoid long notes. Use notes only to include material that you cannot fit into the text but that is essential for a clear and complete understanding of what you have written.
- Bibliographic notes giving additional references and evaluative comments on sources, contact information, or both for each of the document's authors.
Number your notes consecutively, using superscript arabicnumerals both in the text and in your endnotes.
