Introduction

The Modern Language Association (MLA) is the official scholarly organization for
students, teachers, professors, researchers, and others whose special study is language
and the literatures of all languages (from English to Chinese and Spanish, from Arabic
to Icelandic, Urdu and Xhosa). Since 1951, MLA has been publishing guidelines for
style, including instructions on documenting the use of sources. While the methods
have changed over the years (from notes and bibliography to parenthetical citations
and works cited), what follows are models based on the 6th edition of theMLA

Handbook for Writers of Research Papers (2003). The MLA Style web site

(http://www.mla.org/style_faq) will inform its users of documentation format changes

or additions as they occur.

In this MCC Guide to Writing Research Papers, we give examples for the types of
resources used by students most often. In the MLA Style of Documentation, in-text
citations and list of Works Cited/Consulted are the forms of documentation. They are
modeled in the Sample Paper.

Note how in Works Cited sources are alphabetized, indented, and spaced.

Citing Books and Other Non-Periodical Publications

The order of information in an MLA listing is fixed. The author(s) last name comes
first. It is separated by a comma from the first name, which is followed by a period.
The title comes next, and it is underlined. * The title is followed by the place of
publication and punctuated with a colon. The publisher's name is listed next, followed
by a comma. The year of publication follows and is punctuated with a period. See the
following example of a book listing:

Smith, Alison. Name All the Animals. New York: Scribner, 2005.

*In research papers and manuscripts submitted for publication, titles of sources are
best underlined rather than italicized. Italic type is sometimes not distinctive enough.
To avoid ambiguity, underline rather than italicize\u2014or check with your instructor.
When preparing a manuscript for publication, consult with your editor how to
represent italicization.
