Quick Guide to MLA Style: Web Site Citation

This is a guide to citing sources for research papers in MLA Style

MLA 8th Ed. - Web Site

For MLA 8, cite the author if listed, title of the specific page in quotation marks, title of the larger site containing the page in italics, date of publishing (range if a site has been updated over time), and URL. Date of access may be added at the end if the site changes often. If no publication date given, you no longer put "n.d.," but just leave off the date. The date of access can be helpful, espeically if the page might change or be deleted.
