MLA format is commonly used in the humanities. It involves the use of parenthetical in-text citations, which means that the citation information is within parentheses beside the quoted or paraphrased information.
You can get help with MLA from the following:
- The Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL) offers a useful and comprehensive guide to citing different types of sources in MLA format.
- The complete MLA 2009 style guide is at the Library Service Desk under this call number:
REF-DESK LB2369 .G53 2009
- You can copy and paste a reference cited in MLA style directly from many of the library databases and from Google Scholar.
- You can also use a citation manager software, like EasyBib, Zotero, or EndNote.
