MLA Style Center website: The MLA style center has examples of MLA citation including in-text citations, works cited, research paper formatting, and practice templates. You can also ask any questions not found in the MLA guide directly to the editors of the MLA handboook or search through previously asked questions.
Excelsior Online Writing Lab (OWL): Purdue University has created a popular guide for various citation formats, including MLA. Here you'll find MLA citation examples as well information about plagiarism, writing, and grammar.
*Citation generators should be used with caution as they generally will need editing, therefore, it's better to create the citations yourself. If you need to use a generator, make sure it is the latest edition of MLA and you review for accuracy.

("Formatting a Research Paper")
Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary defines plagiarizing as committing “literary theft.” Plagiarism is presenting another person’s ideas, information, expressions, or entire work as one’s own. It is thus a kind of fraud: deceiving others to gain something of value. While plagiarism only sometimes has legal repercussions (e.g., when it involves copyright infringement—violating an author’s exclusive legal right to publication), it is always a serious moral and ethical offense.
