For the most authoritative information on MLA Style, consult the MLA Handbook, 8th Edition. Copies are readily available at the library reference desk.
The new, eighth edition MLA format has some changes from the previous edition.
To read about the specific changes, see the OWL at Purdue's MLA website.
One of the main changes is that you will use core elements to construct your citations. The core elements that are common to all sources from books to websites to articles and tweets are: Author, Title of source, Title of container, Other contributors, Version, Number, Publisher, Publication date and Location
You can also consult the following online resources to help with your MLA Style paper and citation format:
MLA What's New! - Helpful answers to what is new in the MLA Handbook directly from the MLA website.
MLA Style Center - A free companion to the MLA Handbook, published by MLA. Includes sample research papers.
