Incorporating input from users after the major 2016 revamp of MLA style, citation format, and guidelines, this well-organized update contains abundant examples, clear language, and helpful cross-referencing. While keeping the author-title-container format, the MLA editorial team beefed up examples, tweaked guidance for formatting tables and lists, and added sections on inclusive language and how to determine a work’s author, title, or contributors when that information isn’t readily available.
VERDICT A necessary addition to every library’s reference desk, this work is likely to see use from students and scholars, even with the plethora of online citation creators.
