Updated MLA Citation Guide

To make citation practices more consistent across source types and formats, our printed MLA Fastfacts and online MLA LibGuide are now updated to reflect changes in the 8th Edition of the MLA Handbook.  

As a result, there are some small but important changes to the punctuation and formatting of Works Cited entries. The in-text citation guidelines are relatively unchanged.  

For a summary of the changes, visit the MLA Website.  

Where can I get my copy? 

You can view the MLA LibGuide online or you can pick-up MLA Fastfacts handouts on the first floor of the library by the Learning Commons waiting area. 

Where can I get assistance with citing? 

Visit the Research help desk on the library's first floor for more information about what to cite and how to cite and/or sign-up for a writing appointment, please make note of our service hours.  If you're working off-campus, you can also ask questions via our online chat.
