  • MLA Parenthetical Citations - The Basics
    A simple overview of how to write and use in-text citations from the Online Writing Lab at Purdue University. This site includes examples for books, magazines, websites, and more.

Why All The Rules?

Does it really matter if your paper looks like my paper?

Yes! While following MLA style guidelines may feel pointless, this formal writing style has many important purposes.  Correct formatting helps you create an organized document that is easy to read (and grade), write a well-supported argument or paper, and avoid plagarism.
