This LibGuide is to help you use the Modern Language Association (MLA) style guide, which is frequently used for the humanities including English, history, philosophy, music, and the fine arts.
This guide can help you with the more fundamental tasks including:
1. Works Cited Formats - examples and explanations for citing your sources in the various formats for your Works Cited list
2. Formatting Your Paper - how to set up your paper including the margins, font, and your Works Cited list as well as view a sample paper
3. In-text citations - also known as parenthetical notation - how to cite your references in the text of your paper
4. EndNote - bibliographic citation software, which can help format your citations and is freely available for download to CSS faculty, staff, and students
5. Avoiding Plagiarism - information on the College's academic honesty policy and Turnitin, an online tool to detect where sources need to be cited
Note: This guide is in no way a replacement for the actual handbook, which is over a hundred pages long and can be found in the Library on reserve or at a bookstore near you. Please consult the MLA Handbook 8th edition manual for authoritative information in greater detail. Also feel free to talk with a librarian for more help.
