Always check with your professors about their preferred citation style. They may have very specific requirements, or may leave it up to you - just ask!
Modern Languages Association (MLA) style is one of several styles for academic citation. It is used in the humanities, especially English.
MLA uses a Works Cited page at the end of your paper, and in-text parenthetical citations.
MLA is on its 9th edition of style guidelines. The official Handbook is in the Reference Section of Raugust Library, and UJ Quick Guides are available below for the 9th and 8th editions.
