Carol Klavon, July 17, 2008 (view all comments by Carol Klavon)
I used this book in a research paper I did for an English class at the local community college. MLA stands for Modern Language Association and refers to the style in which the research paper itself is written (line spacing, indenting, etc.), but especially the method in which sources are cited. My english teacher has this edition of the MLA handbook for his own reference, and that is good enough for me.
