MLA Citation Formated Updated


The MLA citation format in HeinOnline has now been updated to include a permalink and database name directly within the citation. While HeinOnline is composed entirely of image-based PDFs that are exact facsimiles of the original print materials, this update has enhanced the citation format to cite to a database rather than a print publication.

Updates include:

  • Name of database (HeinOnline)
  • Permalink to the document

Located above the table of contents of any document in HeinOnline is the cite button. This tool provides the document’s citation in multiple citation formats including Modern Language Association (MLA)American Psychological Association (APA)ChicagoBluebookOxford University Standard for the Citation of Legal Authorities (OSCOLA) and recently the McGill Guide.
