Widely adopted by universities, colleges, and secondary schools, the MLA Handbook is the guide millions of writers have relied on for over half a century. The seventh edition, taken out of print by the MLA in spring 2016 upon publication of the eighth edition, provides the MLA's previous recommendations on documentation style for use in student writing. Please note that copies of the seventh edition of the MLA Handbook include a code for accessing an accompanying Web site. The Web site is no longer available.
All of the widely used documentation styles - MLA, APA, Chicago, Turabian, etc., include formating for public documents, as well as for other print and electronic materials. Adams Library owns print copies of these various style manuals and there are also numerous style websites which provide guidance in this arena. Below is a select list of these websites.
