MLA is the name of the official bibliographic format required at UWCSEA, all the way up through the International Baccalaureate Diploma programme.  The MLA format is defined by the Modern Language Association.


The Very Basics

The easy way to remember basic bibliographic details is to think of a NAPPY.


Author last name , Author first name .  Title Place of publication :  Publisher , Date published . 

This basic format works for both books and websites, though you might have to look harder to figure out the information about a website.
  • For websites, PLACE of publication might just be a country.
  • For websites, look for a "Last Updated" or "Copyright" date for the YEAR information.
  • For websites, include a copy of the link, if possible.
Example:
  • Gibbons, Gail.  Caves and Caverns.  New York:  Harcourt Brace, 1993.
  • "Is Pluto No Longer a Planet?".  National Geographic for Kids.  9 Oct 2008.  Accessed 18 Jan 2009.  <http://kids.nationalgeographic.com/Stories/SpaceScience/Pluto-planet>
