MLA style is commonly used in Composition classes, Literature, and other Humanities courses.
In 2016, MLA published the 8th Edition handbook, which is significantly different from the 7th Edition that had previously been used. When using a citation guide or automatic citation generator like EasyBib, make sure you have selected the correct MLA edition.
EasyBib is a free, online tool for generating citations. Only MLA style citations are available on the free version. EasyBib is, as it's name suggests, easy to use, but the video below will give you some tips for finding the citations pieces you need to ensure that you get accurate, correct citations out of EasyBib.
