Where To Look For A Top-Quality MLA Essay Example

Because the Modern Language Association style is the one most frequently used in the arts and humanities, then you need to find some excellent examples before you start writing your essay. I would only suggest going ahead once you are one-hundred percent certain that you are comfortable with the formula. The last thing you want is for your masterpiece to fall short on technical grounds.

If you are unfamiliar with this particular style, then you will be forgiven for wondering just where you can turn to for help. Thankfully you are not alone, and an abundance of useful resources is available to you, provided, of course, you know where to look, which is where I come in. I have pulled together details of the best places to start your quest.

The library.

While libraries are so yesterday for large swathes of the population, they are still a student’s best friend. Apart from being warm, and dry and full of computers, you may also be able to find a copy of either the MLA Style Manual and Guide to Scholarly Publishing or the MLA Style Sheet there. You may be able to borrow a copy, or if it is a reference only study the guide. All for free.

Your college website

Your college website is an excellent resource not just for essay examples, but for all aspects of college life. If you can get into the habit of treating the website as your first port of call, then you will find navigating student life a whole lot easier.

Your lecturer

This might seem obvious. However, contrary to what the rumor mill will have you believe your lecturer is not there to trip you up, they are there to help you get the best grade that you possibly can. They want to help you. Oddly enough, your lecturer has also been down this road before, numerous times, and it is not beyond the realms of possibility that they might have examples that they can share with you. What’s more, by going straight to the horse’s mouth, you can be certain that anything that they do show you will be of a suitably high standard.


As with all varieties of college essay, there is an abundance of information and material to be found on the internet. Some of it is good, some of it not so. That is why I would suggest that you try either your lecturer or college website in the first instance. Remember, there is absolutely no need whatsoever to pay for this information. It should all be readily available free of charge.
