The MLA Handbook is now Online!

by Pat Dover on 2021-10-30T20:47:08-05:00 | Comments

MLA Handbook Plus includes the full text of the ninth edition of the handbook, which is a textbook and reference guide that offers student writers and writing instructors guidance on creating works-cited-list entries in MLA style using the template of core elements. It features advice on punctuation, grammar, inclusive language, formatting research papers, and in-text citations. Includes an appendix of sample works-cited-list entries, illustrations, and an index.

The cornerstone of MLA Handbook Plus is the ninth edition of the MLA Handbook, released in print in spring 2021. The ninth edition was created in direct, sustained dialogue with the instructors, librarians, and students around the world who use the handbook every day. A comprehensive reference work and textbook, the new handbook features

  • 400 pages
  • seven chapters, three of which are devoted to documentation
  • 142 visual examples
  • over 500 sample citations  
  • two appendixes
  • a comprehensive index

Everything in the new edition of the handbook is available on MLA Handbook Plus, but this is more than an e-book. MLA has added features that enhance the content and make learning and teaching MLA style even easier. For example, throughout the site, you’ll find lots of cross-linking of related content. To reinforce core concepts, there is a split-view feature to allow students to see figures and illustrations while reading corresponding content, so exploring the handbook will be even more interactive.

You can find MLA HandBook Plus in the A-Z Databases list, or link to it here.
