    The new and improved MLA 8th Edition is here! Ready to learn the basics? Interested in seeing how it differs from MLA 7? Want to know how to make teaching citations fun and exciting? Follett and EasyBib have teamed together to show you all of the above!  

    During this webinar, EasyBib's In-House Librarian, Michele Kirschenbaum, provides a run-down of MLA 8's key features and provides activities to help students learn the ins and outs of citing sources.  

    Co-sponsors Follett and Easybib, a Chegg service, also give a short peek of their product integration at the end of the webinar.

    Cannot get video to work.  Only the slideshow using different link but doesn't make much sense without audio.
