Mla Handbook For Writers Of Research Papers 9th Edition

The Libraries now have print copies of the new 8th edition of the MLA Handbook (previous title MLA Handbook for writers of research papers).

SUMMARY: The Modern Language Association, the authority on research and writing, takes a fresh look at documenting sources in the eighth edition of the MLA Handbook. Works are published today in a dizzying range of formats. A book, for example, may be read in print, online, or as an e-book–or perhaps listened to in an audio version. On the Web, modes of publication are regularly invented, combined, and modified. Previous editions of the MLA Handbook provided separate instructions for each format, and new formats required additional instructions. In this groundbreaking new edition of its best-selling handbook, the MLA recommends instead one universal set of guidelines, which writers can apply to any source”– Back cover.

For more information on citation styles, including citation examples, see the guide Citing Your Sources & Writing Styles. Also, see the MLA’s Style Center.

Shorter and redesigned for easy use, the eighth edition of the MLA Handbook guides writers through the principles behind evaluating sources for their research. It then shows them how to cite sources in their writing and create useful entries for the works-cited list.
