MLA9 provides expanded guidance on the major changes first introduced in MLA8, including:
the establishment of core elements for simpler citation formatting, including the concept of information containers
the removal of medium type (ex: Print/Web) from citations
the removal of publication location when citing books

MLA9 also includes new sections covering:
