MLA Overview

The Modern Language Association of America publishes two academic style guides. The MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers is used mainly by high school and undergraduate students in the humanities. The MLA Style Manual and Guide to Scholarly Publishing is intended for graduate students, scholars, and professional writers. Both guides offer extensive guidance on writing papers, including how to cite sources.

This page will help you get started with MLA Style, but you may need the MLA Handbook or the MLA Style Manual for details we can't cover here.

 

The MLA Handbook

The MLA Handbook and the MLA Style Manual are both available in the library:

--Information Desk (4th Floor Lab) - Ask the Librarian.
