MLA 8th edition is a re-imaging of citation style where the format of your source is not the focus. Until now, MLA citation has always begun by considering what kind of source is being cited.
Please check with your instructor about what version of MLA style to use in your assignments.
The MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers provides detailed guidelines for using MLA style. This style is common in the humanities (including English).
Copies of the MLA Handbook are kept at the Mount Library on Reserve, at the Reference Desk and in the Reference shelves: REF LB2369 G53 2009
