THIS TITLE HAS BEEN UPDATED TO REFLECT THE 2016 MLA UPDATES! Our editorial team has updated this text based on content from The MLA Handbook, 8th Edition. Browse our catalog or contact your representative for a full listing of updated titles and packages, or to request a custom ISBN. With thoroughly revised advice for finding, evaluating, and documenting sources, this handy spiral-bound booklet covers the essential information college students need for research assignments in more than 30 disciplines. New, up-to-date documentation models guide students as they cite common sources and newer sources — such as blogs, podcasts, online videos, and reposted Web content — in one of four documentation styles (MLA, APA, Chicago, and CSE). And new advice and examples help students engage in the research process, find entry points in debates, and develop their authority as researchers. The many examples, according to one college librarian, "are realistic and relevant." Research and Documentation in the Digital Age is the perfect companion to any college textbook.
