Q. How do I cite class notes in MLA format?


Class notes qualify as "a lecture, a speech, an address, or a reading" in section 5.7.11 of the 2009 MLA Handbook.

The Handbooks states:

In a citation of an oral presentation, give the speaker's name; the title of the presentation (if known), in quotation marks; the meeting and the sponsoring organization (if applicable); the location; and the date. Use an appropriate descriptive label (Address, Lecture, Keynote, speech, Reading), neither italicized nor enclosed in quotation marks, to indicate the form of delivery.
