MLA Style - 8th Edition
The Modern Language Association released the 8th edition of its MLA Handbook in the summer of 2016. This edition introduces a significantly different way of citing sources. Some faculty at SUNY Cobleskill require their students to use the new 8th edition, but others prefer to continue using the formatting style from the 7th edition.
Visit the MLA's website to see an overview of the major changes introduced in the 8th edition.
For a detailed explanation of all the components of a properly formatted citation using the style introduced in the 8th edition, visit the MLA Formatting guide provided by the Online Writing Lab (OWL) at Purdue University.
