MLA Style (Modern Language Association)

 

 

 

 

MLA Style is commonly used in Composition courses as well as some Humanities classes. 

You can work with the MLA Style Guide (pictured on the bottom left), or with the resources provided in this guide.

You'll find basic examples of citing books, articles, web resources, and creating in-text citations.   Additional online resources are also included.

 

If you cannot get access to the MLA Style Guide, you can refer to Purdue University's Online Writing Lab (OWL).  Their MLA Formatting and Style Guide includes examples and instructions for citing the most common types of sources.
