MLA Handbook

MLA and Research Writing Overview

*NOTE ON MLA HELP RESOURCES: The Modern Language Association released a new version of the MLA Handbook (9th edition) in summer of 2021.

This page is still "under construction" to reflect the changes, but luckily the MLA did not make substantial changes to the rules for this edition. Most of the new book is additional helpful examples of existing rules.

Click on the links to the left for various help documents and links for MLA Format.

Also check out the MLA's own website, the MLA Style Center, for many helpful resources!

I would especially recommend the Interactive Practice Template to help you write a citation!
