MLA Citation

When conducting research for any type of project or paper, it is necessary to credit all the sources of information that you consulted. By doing so, you recognize the ideas, research, and writing of others, and give due credit to those who influenced your writing or creating when you consulted their work. There are different citation styles. At THS, the Modern Language Association (MLA) citation style is most often used, but you should always consult with your teacher to determine the style required for your class.

The MLA Handbookfor Writers of Research Papers explains how to develop and write a research paper, including the mechanics of creating citations in MLA format. The most recent edition of The MLA Handbook, published in 2016, is available in the THS LMC.  The 8th edition contains guidelines to apply digital and print resources .
