There are two different manuals for MLA Style Citations: the Handbook and the Style Manual. The Handbook was revised in summer 2016; copies of both the new 2016 8th edition and the older 7th edition are listed below.
The Modern Language Association (MLA) released an updated handbook in summer 2016. Butler Libraries has copies of both the updated 8th and 7th editions in Reference.
The Purdue OWL has created a resource about changes with the release of the 8th edition (link below) Purdue's resources have been updated, as well as those provided by the MLA. Unfortunately, though, some citation generator sites and some of our database providers have not updated to the newest version.
