The newer 8th edition changes MLA's citation rules. "Works are published today in a dizzying range of formats. A book, for example, may be read in print, online, or as an e-book--or perhaps listened to in an audio version. On the Web, modes of publication are regularly invented, combined, and modified. Previous editions of the MLA Handbook provided separate instructions for each format. . . . [Now] MLA recommends instead one universal set of guidelines, which writers can apply to any source."--Back cover.
