EasyBib currently provides free MLA formatting based on sixth edition of the MLA handbook. In April though, MLA will be releasing their seventh edition of their handbook. We plan to incorporate these new rules for the 2009/2010 school year, as to not confuse any users by changing our system in the middle of the year.

Some interesting rules to note with the new edition:

  • No more underlining. Instead, MLA will recommend italicizing titles of independently published works.
  • No more URLs. While you will have to provide the core data for online sources, a URL is not required. However, you are encouraged to add the URL if the citation data provided does not let the reader easily locate the source

In the meantime, we will continue to improve our core services. Always feel free to contact us if you have any ideas or suggestions!
