Assignment Cover Sheet
You need to attach a completed cover sheet to the front of every assignment you submit, including online submissions to Turnitin. The School of EMSAH does not provide cover sheets, you MUST print out your own.

EMSAH mainly uses the MLA (Modern Language Association of America) referencing style for all assignments. The MLA style is widely used in the fields of modern literature and linguistics. MLA referencing uses Harvard-style references in the text of the document, but without the year of publication.
Please refer to your Course Coordinator for the appropriate referencing style required for your course.
The following links should be consulted as a guide to the MLA and other referencing styles of documentation used by EMSAH:
The MLA 3rd ed. (Manual) and 7th ed. (Handbook) - UQ Library "How To" Guide(113.38 KB)
Purdue Online Writing Lab - Terms and Conditions of Fair Use
MLA Formatting and Style Guide
Chicago Manual of Style
Many of your assignments will ask you to show a familiarity with critical or secondary texts other than the immediate set texts. It is very common, for example, for a literature assignment to expect you to have read some critical material on the writer you are dealing with, and to show the evidence of this in the actual assignment. An assignment in cultural studies may similarly expect you to show a knowledge of some of the work which has been done elsewhere on the topic, and for you to engage with those arguments.
On this site, students will find information on the major elements of English grammar and punctuation, with links to style quizzes and other useful sources.
External Resources by Study Area
Below are links to Resource Areas, where you will find a small selection of the external online resources available for some of the study areas relevant to the School. It is an annotated guide to some of the main jumping-off points, not a comprehensive list. Rather than try to keep track of the many developments and additions to the Web, for the most part it has been chosen instead to provide you with links to sites which are dedicated to doing just that. This means, for example, that you won't find lists of Web sites dedicated to particular authors. What you will find is a listing of sites which make it their business to compile links to individual authors. Bookmark any of these you find useful. Because of the nature of the Web, links can go out of date quite rapidly.
- If you find one of these links no longer works, please email us at: email@example.com.
- If you come across any links you think should be included here, please share them with us. Email the URL to the School with a brief description of the site or a comment on it.
