Using MLA Format

Modern Language Association (MLA) Format is a writing style used mainly by English classes. The MLA publishes and regularly updates The MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers, the official guide to using MLA format. The MLA Handbook is now in its 7th edition (2009), so if you refer to any books or web sites to help you formulate your paper, make sure the source is using the most up-to-date edition to avoid penalties from your instructor. An updated print copy of the handbook is available in both campus libraries.

MLA style does not require a cover page, but does require a specific heading on the front page, as well as the student's last name and page number listed in the top right corner of every page.

You will also have to leave in-text citations throughout your paper each time you make a reference to a source. Usually these will consist of an author name (or title if no author is given) and page number within parenthesis. For example, (Smith 5) would be an appropriate citation for a reference found on the fifth page of a book written by an author with the last name Smith. The citation goes at the end of the appropriate sentence, after quotation marks but before the period or punctuation ending the sentence. If no author is given, you will simply use the title of the article, book, or web site followed by page number. There are a number of different ways to create in-text citations depending on the number of authors and the type of source, so be sure to choose the correct format.


At the end of your paper, a works cited page is required. This means you will have to make a list of all the books, articles, and web sites you referred to within the body of your paper. This list must also be formatted in a specific way.
