    Suffolk CCC Online Writing Lab
Your own SCCC Writing Center (Islip 100), directed by Professor Liz Cone, maintains this site with lists of resources, FAQs, a way for you to ask a Writing Center consultant questions concerning your draft, or even send a draft to a consultant. In addition, be sure to visit the Writing Center for assistance and to use its computers and other resources to work on your drafts. [Caution: some areas of this site are still under construction]

    The MLA Online
        The MLA website includes several pages devoted to MLA style as well as important FAQs regarding using and citing World Wide Web sources or turning off Insert Hyperlink in your research papers. This information is more up-to-date than the Internet information provided in THE MLA HANDBOOK FOR WRITERS OF RESEARCH PAPERS (6/e 2003).

     LIU: MLA Citation Style
        This site, maintained by the C.W. Post library, is an easy-to-use, color-coded resource for creating citations in the MLA format. Using this site along with the Citation Machine below should make generating MLA citations a easy as possible.

    Guide to Grammar and Writing
This user-friendly site, sponsored by the Capital Community College Foundation, contains much useful information about matters of style (from informal to formal) on the sentence, paragraph, and essay level. Check it out if you have a question about style while you are writing a draft or browse it just for fun.

    What Is Plagiarism?
        from Georgetown University

    Avoiding Plagiarism
         from Purdue University

    If you have any uncertainties or concerns about plagiarism, its definition, occurrence, and consequences, please check these sites. They are filled with useful information as well as links to other college and university writing center sites. Also, be sure to consult with me or the staff in the Writing Center (Islip 100).

    The Citation Machine
        This site is an interactive web-tool that allows you to create reference citations in MLA, APA, CM and other styles. I recommend you use this helpful service. If you have any questions about creating citations, please see me before you start. WARNING: The Citation Machine cannot provide citations for every possible source, so you will also have to consult THE MLA HANDBOOK FOR WRITERS OF RESEARCH PAPERS (6/e 2003) or our QUICK ACCESS handbook (5/e 2007).
