New MLA and APA Citation Guides

The Modern Language Association (MLA) and the American Psychological Association (APA) have both published new editions of their style guides in the last year. We have updated our citation guides to reflect the changes in the new editions. Go to the ‘Cite Your Sources‘ section of our website to download the newest citation guides. Both are available in PDF and RTF. The PDF version of the MLA guide can be printed on the library’s printer so that it can be folded into a booklet. The RTFs can be opened in a word processor so you can edit the formatting (i.e., increase font size).
