MLA 9 expands upon the definition of an author, ensuring that any author who appears in the work is listed, as well as any organization or publisher with which the author has a relationship. This allows for more consistency in citing sources. It also provides more clarification on defining types of sources, such as notes, websites and blogs. MLA 9 also offers more examples of how to use these sources in a citation and explains when to include quotation marks around the title of a source, and when to insert a URL into a Works Cited entry.

Christie Lohr founded Style Nine to Five after experiencing the frustration of sifting through unqualified resumes on generic job sites like Workopolis and Craigslist. It’s a one-stop shop that connects fashion employers with fashion candidates. Employers can advertise full-time, part-time and intern positions for thirty days and then search a database of pre-screened, fashion-forward resumes. Confidentiality is important to Christie and she and her team are dedicated to keeping their client and candidate information confidential.
