The UAlbany Libraries now have access to MLA online. Go to MLA Handbook Plus.

Modern Language Association (MLA) style is used primarily for research papers in the arts and humanities.  Below is the style guide from the MLA.

As a companion to the ninth edition of the handbook, the Libraries also provide access to MLA Handbook Plus, which includes example citations not found in the handbook, FAQs about citing sources, a practice template, and paper-formatting guidelines. (authentication required off-campus)
