Citation Guide: Modern Language Association (MLA)
Modern Language Association (MLA) style, used primarily in the humanities, emphasizes the authors of a source and the pages on which information is located in the source. Writers who use the MLA documentation system cite, or formally acknowledge, source information within their text using parentheses, and they provide a list of sources in a works cited list at the end of their document. For more information about MLA style, consult the MLA Handbook, Eighth Edition. Information about the MLA Handbook can also be found at www.mla.org.
