Welcome to the MLA Citation Toolkit! This has been designed to answer many of your common citation questions. Do you have a question that isn't listed here, but should be? Send me an email (email@example.com)! I'll answer your question privately within 48 hours, and make an addition to this toolkit so others can benefit, too!
If you have an immediate need, be sure to check out these two references:
- Purdue OWL--The Purdue OWL is commonly accepted as the toolkit for deciphering MLA and APA formatting and style requirements. It's created and updated by the Purdue Online Writing Lab. This is often the fastest, most reliable reference for your citation questions as it's online and available 24/7!
- MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers (7th edition) -- This handbook is the text authority on all things MLA. The 7th edition is the most current, and therefore supersedes any earlier version. This is the most thorough resource available. As this is a book, you may not have access to it right away--but your local library or home college library will definitely have a copy.
