Q. What is the difference between the MLA 7th edition and the 8th edition?

Answer

The Modern Language Association of America introduced this latest handbook in early 2016. Overall, the biggest change is in how the citations are formatted.  Punctuation has been simplified and listing the format such as print or web has been removed. If you are interested in knowing more about the changes, please look on the MLA website or on our MLA 8 Libguide.
