MLA guidelines for Spanish are different than for English. You can find the full description on pages 111-112 of the MLA Handbook.
SPANISH CITATION IDIOSYNCRACIES
Only the first letter of the first word and the first letters of proper nouns are capitalized in titles of articles and journals. (In regular MLA, all first letters are capitalized in titles except for articles and prepositions.)
DAYS OF WEEK
|Do not capitalize months or days of the week unless they begin a sentence (as you do in regular Spanish prose). This will only affect you if you are citing web sources or non-continuously-paginated journals.|
RULES IN GENERAL
|Follow other Spanish captilization rules such as not capitalizing yo, the names of languages and nationalities, nouns and adjectives derived from proper nouns, titles preceding personal names, and the words meaning "street," "square," and so on, in most place-names.
RULES IN GENERAL
Spanish de is not used before the last name alone.
Spanish del is capitalized and used with the last name alone:

The dominant citation style in Modern Languages is that of the Modern Language Association, MLA.
If in Modern Language Education, however, the American Psychological Association Style, APA, is preferred. (Professor will instruct on which style is preferred).
Our Citation Research Guide provides some guidelines and examples (for full guidelines, see a manual, kept at the reference desk).
Vogel Library's Annotated Bibliography guide will help you get started understanding, researching, writing, and formatting your annotated bibliography.
