MLA Style Introduction

These OWL resources will help you learn how to use the Modern Language Association (MLA) citation and format style. This section contains resources on in-text citation and the Works Cited page, as well as MLA sample papers, slide presentations, and the MLA classroom poster.

MLA Overview and Workshop

This workshop provides an overview of MLA style and where to find help with different MLA resources. It provides an annotated list of links to all of our MLA materials as well, making it an excellent place to start to learn about MLA format.

MLA Formatting and Style Guide

MLA style is most commonly used to cite sources within the language arts, cultural studies, and other humanities. This resource, revised according to the 8th edition of the MLA manual, offers examples for the general format of MLA research papers, in-text citations, and the Works Cited page. For more information, please consult the official MLA Handbook (8th ed.).
