MLA: How do I format an appendix?

The Appendix appears before the Works Cited list -- If you have more than one appendix you would name the first appendix Appendix A, the second Appendix B, etc. -- The appendices should appear in the order that the information is mentioned in your essay -- Each appendix begins on a new page -- Use signpost only (see Appendix A).
