Smackdown! M.L.A. 7 vs. M.L.A. 8
A major change has occurred in the in the world of citation! The Modern Language Association (MLA) 8th edition was released in April, and the difference is the use of one standard citation format that applies to every source type. In previous editions, students were required to find the format of the source they used. For example, if a magazine was used, they needed to locate the specific citation format for periodicals. Now there is one standard, universal format for all source types. They have added the concept of a "container" where the researcher includes the source where the item is contained. For example, if you include a television show watched on Netflix, then Netflix is the "container." Our campus site EasyBib.com will support MLA 7 until next fall.
