This guide is designed to offer assistance with using MLA citation style. The Modern Language Association (MLA) citation style guide is commonly used for avoiding plagiarism in research papers. It is important to cite the information that you use during your research. No matter where you find the information, from a book, journal, magazine, newspaper, interview or the internet, you must give the author credit for using his or her work and ideas. Remember: When in doubt, cite!
For additional assistance, please see a librarian at the reference desk.
The Library's MLA Citation Style Handbook is designed as a quick reference for citing sources. A print copy can also be obtained at the reference desk. Contact the Library at any time if you have questions about properly using citation styles.
