About this Guide

This quick-reference guide answers the most common MLA citation questions. For more information on MLA citations (as well as MLA paper formatting and writing style), please consult the MLA Style Center or the complete MLA Handbook (9th ed.).

The library also highly recommends the Purdue OWL website. OWL provides guidance on general formatting for MLA style and includes examples and an annotated sample paper.
