About MLA Style

MLA Style is the standard for publications of the Modern Language Association (MLA). While originally designed for the fields of literature, language, film, and folklore, the style has been widely adopted by other disciplines within the humanities. This style is also the one commonly used in undergraduate rhetoric and writing classes such as UNIV 200.
