The MLA Style Paper

The MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers, by Joseph Gibaldi, is the "official" manual for MLA style. It is 293 pages long and covers in detail every aspect of how a research paper should look and how it should read and how it should be organized. When you get a chance go to the library and take a look at this book. It is quite interesting.

In summary, an MLA paper has the bibliographic notes at the end, beginning with a separate page entitled "Works Cited."

We will not worry too much about details other than how to cite works. That part of the style you will want to master. There are two sites you may want to become familiar with and bookmark for further use. Here they are:
