Update for OpenOffice 3.4 & 3.4.1 Below:
The instructions for the above OpenOffice tutorial were last checked in May of 2013

The MLA format Open Office tutorial on this current page is a step by step walkthrough guide about how to set up a paper in MLA format in OpenOffice 3.3 / OpenOffice 3.2 / OpenOffice 3.1 and is not really for the latest version of OpenOffice 3.4

Still, it's even easier to download the free OpenOffice template below, which has the page format already completed for you, including the heading setup and an MLA title page sample layout, so that you can start to outline and write the research paper without having to set up any formatting at all:

The link above has free templates for Microsoft Word MLA format and OpenOffice MLA format

To download OpenOffice for Free and install the OpenOffice Office Suite (a free alternative to the Microsoft Office Suite), go here for the OpenOffice download free:
Learn what is Open Office and why it's one of the best free software programs out there, and how OpenOffice vs Microsoft Office is different

You can also check out my list of the best research paper topics if you have to write an MLA research paper and you need argumentative research essay topic ideas:

Open Office review: The Apache OpenOffice Writer is the best Microsoft Word alternative text editor for writing an essay, and it works Windows 8, Windows 7, Vista, Linux, and Mac OSX -- plus, it's relatively fast and easy to do OpenOffice MLA style, including the setting up the header, the date format, the spacing, and the MLA title page format for the first page. Plus, the updated video shows an example of how to export as PDF (instead of using "Save as" ODF or ODT) so that you can print it at a library, high school, or college location

The downloadable template document file above should also work for Libre Office 3 / Libre Office 4, though I prefer OpenOffice vs LibreOffice -- please feel free to contact me for help if there are any issues, though I may just recommend installation of OpenOffice in the end

This video tips guide on MLA format for OpenOffice AKA Sun Open Office AKA OOO (OpenOffice.org) AKA Oracle Open Office was created by Rob Frank to teach students how to do MLA format on OpenOffice, and it adheres to the proper MLA Style Manual Book by the Modern Language Association (or to learn MLA formatting using online resources, Google: purdue owl mla) -- however, I'm not yet sure if this video tutorial works for Android OpenOffice, so please feel free to let me know if you learn the answer to whether or not you can MLA format OpenOffice for Android

Also, please feel free to contact me if you need MLA OpenOffice help with formatting -- for example, one of my comments below shows the "how do I remove the page number on the first page in OpenOffice" solution

Thanks for watching this quick OpenOffice MLA Format Page Setup Tutorial video, and hopefully it made MLA format OpenOffice setup simple for you

I'm actually impressed if you read this far -- you should do well on your English paper (at least it will have proper MLA Open Office format)

This YoutTube video is the OpenOffice 3 tutorial for how to use OpenOffice 3.3 tutorial, but for the Open Office Writer Tutorial, the OpenOffice 3.4.1 review 2013, and the how to use OpenOffice 3.4.1 tutorial you can go to the link at the top of this page for the new Apache Open Office tutorial, including Open Office for Mac, Open Office for Windows 8, Open Office for Windows 7, and Open Office for ubuntu
