MLA

The MLA format is commonly used by those citing papers in the humanities. It gives credit to other writers, and can be used to link back to original sources. This also helps prevent readers from going back to the wrong information since many pages on the web may share similar characteristics. MLA format also specifies the date in which content was accessed, and unlike books or other sources, electronic sources often change making this an important item to cite.
