MLA/APA

Roberts, Appendix B -- Jerz: American Lit II (EL 267)Last semester, it was OK to uses APA Citation. Now we have to use MLA. There are slight differences, and until I realized this, I was doing it incorrectly. I am scanning pages 286-287 and hanging them above my computer.

You should always ask your professors what citation style they prefer. There's no real difference in the general principles behind what to cite and why, but there are differences in the details.

May I ask what the significance of having two different styles. I have five classes this semester, two of which use APA, and this class which use MLA. Why not a universal style?
