How to cite a website
Information Used for the Citation of a Web Page or Website
The information you need to cite a website or web page is similar to the information used to cite print resources, with a few additions. You will need:
1. Author - Who is responsible for the information published on the web page or website
2. Title - Title of the page or article.
3. Name of the Publisher - Who is responsible for the publication of the website.
4. Date of Publication or date of last update of the website - This information is usually found at the bottom of the page. Look for the "c" with the circle around it to indicate copyright or information about the last update.
5. Date of Access - This is the date you accessed the information on the website. Just a suggestion, check the website before you finish your final draft to make sure the information has not changed.
6. Web Address (Optional) - The MLA Handbook no longer requires that the basic address be included in a citation. However, sometimes it is helpful to have the address in your citation in order to make it easier for you to check your information before submitting your final product.
7 Print or Web designator: Remember to put Web as the last part of your citation.
