Introduction to MLA Documentation Style

Academic writing standards require you to credit all sources that you use to write a paper, report, or study. The Modern Language Association (MLA) documentation style provides a guideline for properly crediting your sources by requiring notes in the text of your work that point the reader to an alphabetical list of your sources, called a “Works Cited” list. Properly citing your sources of information allows a reader to locate the original sources of information you used in your writing and will also help you avoid the serious offense of plagiarism.

New! ► For more detailed information about the 2009 update for MLA documentation style, consult the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers, 7th ed., located in the Reference section (Ref 808.027 ML699m),
