MLA and Research Writing Overview

handbook*NOTE ON MLA HELP RESOURCES: The Modern Language Association released a new version of the MLA Handbook (8th edition) in April 2018, which significantly changes the way we cite sources.

The new guidelines will make it easier to cite sources in a variety of formats, so this is good news if you've ever struggled with citing an image from Google or a TED Talk! Never fear! We have plenty of resources to help you.

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

We are in the process of updating all our resources on this page. Everything you see here is for the new 8th Edition format, but we will continue to add documents and links. Also please check out the incredible Purdue OWL, from Purdue University in Indiana, which is all up to date!:
