What is MLA Style?
Every time you use information from any source, you are conducting research. All good researchers give credit to their sources, and use common formats to present their research. This is true whether you:
- Present your "research" as a written paper, powerpoint presentation, graphic organizer, or any Web 2.0 format
- Use one source or many.
- Quote only from the novel you are reading in class, or your textbook.
In the West Essex Regional School District, we use MLA Style as the common format for crediting sources and formatting written papers and assignments for ALL departments and classes. This guide will provide an overview of MLA Style.
