Junípero Serra High School generally uses MLA Style, 8th edition (2016) for formatting research projects. The Writer's Inc. book does not have the 2016 updates to MLA, so we supplement that text with other sources. We recommend using the MLA Handbook, 8th edition in the library, the MLA Style Center online, or accessing the resources below for guidance on specific formatting and citation questions:
