What does MLA stand for and why is it used in college?
MLA (Modern Language Association) style is:
- A format for writing research papers.
- Used to write papers in college because it offers standardized guidelines for in-text citations, endnotes/footnotes, and the Works Cited page.
- Explained on the Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL) website.
Baker College uses APA (American Psychological Association) style and visit the APA Help Guide for examples.
