I haven't used MLA in quite a long time. What I remember though is that you put I believe the authors name and page numbers that you've taken the quotes from and the text that it came from in parenthesis at the end of the information that you have quoted. At the end of your paper you do need to have a Bibliography of all the text that you used. I hope this has helped you. I also hope my memory is correct. Good luck in changing schools. I was the only blind person who first attended my university in 1994. I didn't graduate from their because the history department was very inadequate. Also they fell down on a lot of promises to help make my education a successful one. So I know what it's like to be the trail blazer or to break barriers. The school I transferred to finish, even though they had a lot more assistive technology help, still weren't great at helping me find readers to do my research. Oh, I would put ads in all the school campus newspapers, and would pay for the service, but still not a lot of people applied for the position. Good luck in pursuing your field and graduating!

Subject: [nabs] Question: Change of School/Major Likely
> Hello All,
> I am considering changing my major and school. As shown below, currently I am a student of Penn Foster College which is an online school. I am considering changing to a community college such as Brown Mackie College, in April, 2010. My reasons for this is that online you don't get the hands-on experience and one-on-one you get in-house (so to speak). I would be changing to Health Care Administration instead of Health Information Technology. I am wondering if any of you are in the field, or happen to know other blind people who trained in that field. I can't seem to find anyone blind so far who has trained in either field of study; so, if not, I'll just break another barrier. Been there, done that, before in my life.
> Also, can somebody perhaps explain to me about the MLA style for writing research papers? I have the guide, but it just isn't computing for some reason. Do you put footnotes and then type a bibliography at the end as well or what?
> Thanks for any help in advance.
