In 2016, the Modern Language Association (MLA) published the 8th edition of the MLA Handbook with a similar but new set of guidelines on how to cite sources. They revised the guidelines in order to be more flexible and to better accommodate the online environment. You no longer need to figure out how to cite a particular "kind" of source like a book, DVD, website, etc. Instead, include the 9 "core elements", in the exact order listed below.
Full guidelines can be found in the MLA Handbook. Two copies of this book are located in the library. Ask for them at the desk.
