Citing Liner Notes
You may want to use CD / LP liner notes for your research assignments, which means you will need to create citations for them. The "quick" MLA style guides online aren't much help because they tend to concentrate on books and journal articles. Here is a template for CD / LP liner notes that I took from the printed MLA Style Guide.
Author's Last Name, First Name. "Title of notes." Liner notes. Album Title. Record label, year of publication. CD (or LP).
If your liner notes don't have a title, that's OK -- just skip it. But if they don't give the author's name, they may not be of very good quality, and you probably shouldn't use them.
Here's an example of liner notes that happen not to have a title:
Thompson, Stephen. Liner notes. The Essential "Weird Al" Yankovic. Sony Music Entertainment, 2009. CD.
