How can I get an authorized copy of the MLA Handbook, ninth edition?

The best way to ensure that you receive a complete, correct, and authorized copy published by the MLA (and not a counterfeit version with errors) is to buy it directly from the MLA’s online bookstore. The handbook is now available in paperback, spiral-bound, and hardcover versions. 

If you are assigning it for courses or buying it outside the United States, you can also purchase it from our authorized distributors, Hopkins Fulfillment Services and Eurospan.
