MLA Documentation

The “Nuts and Bolts” of Effective Research


Why do we use the MLA guide?

The MLA guide provides a standard for all writers in humanities disciplines (mainly English and History).


Format of MLA Guide

  • Divided into sections, not chapters

  • Focuses on multiple areas of concern, not simply documentation

    • Research process

    • Plagiarism

    • Mechanics

    • Formatting


Notice how all parts are vertically aligned.
