How do I identify the title of my digital project when submitting a separate works-cited list?

Note: This post relates to content in the eighth edition of the MLA Handbook. For up-to-date guidance, see the ninth edition of the MLA Handbook.

The MLA Handbook offers suggestions for including information about sources used in digital projects (127–28). If you are unable to include a list of works cited in the digital project itself, you could create an electronic version of the list and link to it from your project. In that case, you would not need to include the title of the project on your works-cited-list page. If, however, you need to submit a printed works-cited list along with the digital project, you could include the title of your project in the header, as shown in the example below:
