The MLA Citation Style is often used for classes in the humanities, such as English and history. The APA Citation Style is the other common format, usually used in the sciences. See the APA citations guide for more information.
The formats in this guide are based on the 8th edition of the MLA Handbook. For a summary of the changes to the 8th edition of the MLA Handbook, see "What's New in the Eighth Edition" on the MLA website.
Questions? Ask a librarian, consult the MLA Handbook (see above), or visit the MLA Style Center.
These handouts are for citations in MLA 7th edition format. Please note that the 7th edition is not current - do not use this format unless your instructor asks you to.
