Copies are available for purchase in the college bookstore (use textbook lookup for current prices). Copies are also available for use at the reference and circulation desks at Brown Library.
The table of contents is found inside the front cover and on the opposite page. Part 8 is "Writing in the Disciplines." Section 58 is "MLA Documentation and Format." This section starts on page 462.
Look for the blue tab for section 8. Then look behind it for the MLA tab. On 462 you will find another menu. The first part of the chapter covers parenthetical text citations. The second part of the chapter, starting on page 474, covers works-cited.
You can also use the index at the back of your style guide to look for specific topics such as authors, books, or encyclopedias. Then you can go directly to the page related to your topic.
