MLA Style Documentation[edit]

  • The MLA style (Modern Language Association) is more generally used because it is more concise and simpler to use.
  • It has been used by schools, academic departments, and instructors for over 50 years.
  • A basic MLA citation contains two kinds of information: the author's name and the specific page or pages on which the cite information is to be found.
