MLA Format, and How Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL) Can Help

Throughout this semester, I will be adding resources to this Smore, which will assist you in compiling any assignments in which proper MLA Format must be used. This includes all paper rough and final drafts, MLA Works Cited page assignment, etc.


Whenever you are in need of further assistance in the use of this format - it's easy to forget between semesters! - always remember to go back to OWL. They have just about every answer you'll need in order to complete your assignment successfully.


Be sure to check back frequently for more Purdue OWL updates!
