Citing references properly using MLA is always a challenge. But have no fear! The kind folks at Purdue's Online Writing Lab (OWL) have created an excellent MLA guide.  The OWL can answer almost any MLA question.  A direct link to the OWL's guide on MLA citation may be found by clicking here.

Another resource for MLA citation style is Diana Hacker Research and Documentation (Please refer to the "Humanities" section for MLA.)
