MLA Citation & Style Guide

About MLA

Modern Language Association (MLA) style, most commonly used in the humanities and liberal arts, is a specific formatting style that students and scholars use to write papers and cite sources. Information here is taken from the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers (7th ed.) which may be consulted for questions not addressed here. Purdue University's Online Writing Lab (OWL) is also an excellent resource.
