MLA Style

MLA is a citation style created by the Modern Language Association.  It is most commonly used in literature, the arts, and other humanities. 

MLA has recently published the 8th edition of their citation manual.  This includes differences in their citation format to allow for more flexibility when covering sources that are presented in different media or formats.
