So I’ve been trying to figure this out for a couple of days now but all I have managed to do is to lose two days of productivity.
Here is how the 7th ed. of the MLA guide instructs us to format our bibliographical notes when we want to cite a single source: “see Public Agenda Foundation 1-10 and Sakala 151-88.” or several authors: “see Taylor A1; Moulthrop, pars. 39-53; Armstrong, Yang, and Cuneo 80-82; Craner 308-11; and Fukuyama 42.”
Now, I feel like an idiot because I can’t seem to force EndNote to do this. I have downloaded the latest MLA output style from the U of Queensland site, but the only output I can get is either in the old format (footnote style), which transcribes the whole citation or a part of it (e.g., Smith, John. John Smith’s Book, etc.) or citation style (Smith 56), which also looks nothing like what MLA demands because it has those parentheses hugging it on either side.
As far as I can tell, the only way to go around this is to transcribe the bibliographical (formerly footnote) citations by hand, but then the sources I cite there do not show up in my Bibliography
What am I missing?
I would sincerely appreciate any help or advice as this dissertation has really already taken too long to write.
