Using the correct formatting and citation style can be difficult! The CCCOnline Library has compiled a variety of resources for you to use to determine how to use certain styles and how to format your citations. Different disciplines of study have a preferred style:
|Modern Language Association (MLA)||English and some Humanities (Foreign Language and Literatures, Literary Criticism, Comparative Literature, Cultural Studies, etc.)|
Please note: It is critical to check your assignment or check with your instructor about the preferred type of style used in your course.
