There are various styles for creating bibliographies and citing authors in your research papers. Basic information about some of the more popular styles can be seen from the Libraries' homepage. Click the "Services" tab on the top of the UGA Libraries Webpage, then look for "Citation Style Guides" under the "Research & Teaching" column on the left, including the English version of the MLA Handbook. (Copies of the 2016 8th edition of the MLA Handbook are available at the Main, Science and Miller Learning Center Reference areas. There are also copies on the third floor of the Main Library: PN203 .G53 2016.)

This course requires the use of the Spanish version of the MLA Handbook. See «Ejemplos» under «Bibliografá» in the Spanish Wikipedia page for «Estilo MLA». [§ NOTE: The previous sentence shows the major differences between the two versions - Look carefully!]
