If you're writing a college essay or report, your bibliography is a painful, yet necessary part. And thanks to all of the information available on the World Wide Web, most colleges and universities accept websites as resources in your bibliography. But citing websites can be confusing when using the MLA citation format. This video will breakdown the process.
Websites: include the title of the web page, the name of the entire web site, the organization that posted it. Include the full date the page was created or last updated (day, month, year if available) and date you looked at it.
Internet Magazine Articles: Include: Full date of article (day, month, year if available) and date you looked at it.
If you are citing a journal instead of a magazine, include volume (and issue number) and date as shown under the Journal Style above. As for page numbers, different databases will provide different information. Include range of pages (ex. 25-28.); or starting page followed by a hyphen, a blank space, and a period (ex. 64- .); or total number of pages or paragraphs (ex. 12 pp. or 33 pars.). If no page information is given, then leave it out.
The name of the database (underlined) and the company that created it. The library or other organization (and its location) that provided you with access to the database. If the web address (URL) of the article is very long, you only need to include URL of database's home page.
