MLA Citation Guide (8th Edition)

MLA Style Citation

MLA stands for Modern Language  Association. MLA style gives you credibility as a writer, protects you from committing plagiarism, provides consistent format within a discipline, and allows readers to cross-reference your sources easily. Every time you write an essay or a research paper, you engage with other writers and scholars.    

Purdue Online Writing Lab Provides MLA Style resources to help you learn MLA:
