MLA 8th Edition Citations: Location

Citation Guide for MLA 8th Edition


Location can mean many different things:

  • Specific range of pages (for articles, book chapters, etc.)
  • URL for a website
  • DOI (digital object identifier) for an article
  • Location of a physical object (work of art in a museum)

For books, city of publication is not required, unless it is relevant. For example, if you are citing the British edition of a text, including London as the city of publication would be useful.

For more information on locations, see pages 46-50 in the MLA Handbook.
