Online Trial Access to New MLA Handbook Plus

The Washington University Libraries are trialing the new MLA Handbook Plus until May 18. The MLA Handbook is the go-to resource for writers of research papers and anyone citing sources in MLA citation style, and this is the first time that it is entirely available for online institutional access. In addition to the full text of the ninth edition of the MLA Handbook, the MLA Handbook Plus includes the following useful content:

  • Two companion titles, the MLA Guide to Digital Literacy and the MLA Guide to Undergraduate Research in Literature.
  • A video course that teaches the principles of MLA documentation style through a series of short videos paired with quizzes, plus a final assessment.
