MLA information
How to master MLA format

Welcome to your MLA resource.  MLA can be a tricky thing, but once you master it, you should be able to handle it just fine.  Until, of course, they decide to change some of the rules and then you've got to learn something new.  Or, until you go to college and end up having to use APA, but that's a whole other story...you can worry about that later.  As for now, hopefully you can find the answers and guidance you need for your MLA formatting problems.  Enjoy!!!

 

For starters, the best website to go to for any MLA questions is the OWL at Purdue.  You can find them HERE.

 

Click HERE for an MLA interactive tutorial.

 

Click HERE for another MLA interactive tutorial - this one is excellent and highly recommended!

 

THIS MLA website is hosted by Williams College Libraries.  If you scroll down, you will find several tables that explain how to cite your sources in a very clear way.

 

THIS is a game from Williams College Libraries called MLA Master Blaster which helps you properly format your MLA citations.  Have fun and learn at the same time!

 

Here's another fun game while learning how to put your citations together.  THIS is Citation Tic-Tac-Toe from James Madison University.

 

THIS site from the University of Washington not only has great MLA games, it has specific games for each type of citation - check it out and you'll see what I mean.
