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 MLA 8th Edition Handbook in the Robert W. Woodruff Library. Call number: LB2369 .G53 2016
- You can copy and paste a reference cited in MLA style directly from many of the library databases and from Google Scholar (to cite from Google Scholar, click on the quotation mark underneath the reference).
- You can also use a citation manager software like Zotero or a citation generator like ZoteroBib.
