MLA 8th edition is an updated, streamlined system of documentation created to reflect the changing nature of modes of publication in a digital age. Instead of structured examples, MLA 8th edition gives the author/writer the flexibility of using a core set of elements to base the citation on. The core elements are the base for the citation whether the item cited is a book, journal article, website, film, or something else. Keep in mind not all resource types will have every core element.

Title of container: A container is a larger work that includes the resource you are citing. Examples include an article (title) in a journal (container title), an essay/chapter (title) in an edited book (container title), an episode (title) of a TV series (container title), or a post (title) on a website (container title). Container titles use the same rules in terms of italics and quotation marks as titles and are followed by a comma.
