MLA Handbook by
Publication Date: 2016-04-01
The EIGHTH EDITION is more than just a new edition, this is a new MLA style.
Which should you use?
It is best to ask each of your professors which style they want you to use. Most professors at The Saint Paul Seminary School of Divinity now use the Chicago/Turabian Style Manual, however a few faculty members may still be asking their students to use the MLA Style Manual.
Print versions of the style manuals contain examples of citing more sources than their web pages do, as well as other things you may need to know, such as margins, font size, etc.
