Modern Language Association (MLA) Style Guide

MLA Style is the preferred form of citation for humanities subjects such as those related to literature and language. It was developed by the Modern Language Association to standardize the documentation of sources which makes it easier for readers to find and verify where cited information originated from. MLA Style guides are updated regularly with the most recent 9th edition being released in 2021.

The most recent edition of the MLA Handbook is available at the QVCC Library service desk.
