About MLA Style

Modern Language Association (MLA) style is commonly used in Humanities courses, such as English, for citing references in student papers. 

This guide is based on the MLA Handbook (7th ed.) that was published in 2009.

Page numbers in brackets refer to specific pages in the handbook.

Check out the General Style Guidelines page to learn more about what's different in the 7th edition.
