Website – A collection of informational pages on the Internet that typically include an article title, author and publisher.

MLA 7 guidelines for online sources do not require listing the URL, unless otherwise specified by your instructor. They do require, however, that you include the publisher or sponsor of the website. Keep in mind that the author or sponsor of a website is commonly a corporation or government entity, rather than an individual.


Citing a website with an author

Structure:

Last, First M. “Article Title.”Website Title. Website Publisher, Date Month Year Published. Web. Date Month Year Accessed.

Note: MLA7 does not require the URL/link in a website citation. However, some instructors still ask for it – double-check if your instructor requires it.

Date Accessed: This is the day that the article was found and read.

Example:

Feinberg, Ashley. “What’s the Safest Seat in an Airplane?” Gizmodo. Gawker Media, 28 Mar. 2013. Web. 30 Mar. 2013.


Citing a website with no author

Note: Depending on the content, credible websites do not always include authors.

Example:

“Website Article.” Website Title. Website Publisher, Date Month Year Published. Web. Date Month Year Accessed.

Note: MLA7 does not require the URL/link in a website citation. However, some of your instructors still ask for it – double-check if your instructor requires it.

Date Accessed: This is the day the article was read and found.

 

Example:

“India.” Travel.State.Gov. Bureau of Consular Affairs, U.S. Department of State, 17 Feb. 2010. Web. 4 May 2010.
