MLA style utilizes short in-text citations after a quotation, a reference to the source or a paraphrase by providing the author’s last name and the page number. Besides that, if you are quoting online resources in your essay, make sure to add a date when you accessed that particular resource. There is no need to mentioning the URL, unless the reader will not be able to find the source otherwise.

When you are referring to a well-known reference book, all you have to do is mention the edition and publication year. Titles in MLA must be italicized. You may use the following abbreviations: n.d. – no date, n. pag. – no pagination, n.p. – no publisher’s name.

As you can notice, the MLA style influences bibliography and citation formatting. There are many other peculiarities, so prior to writing something, make sure to study them, because if you will omit some of them, you might have a very tough time making necessary changes later on. Write all the information about the sources you are using, and you will have no difficulties conforming to any particular style of academic writing.
