How do I cite a web page using MLA format?

General format for websites:

Author last name, First name. “Title of Web Page.” Title of Entire Web Site. Publisher or copyright holder, Date of                  last update or copyright. Medium. Day Month Year of access.

Example: Brichford, Connie. “Choosing Protein Wisely.” Everyday Health. Waterfront Media, 2009. Web. 10 June 200


If the webpage does not have a personal author listed the list the group or publisher of the website at the beginning of the citation as the author (in addition to listening them as the sponsor).


You may also want to visit the Library's MLA Citation Format Guide or   Purdue University's Online Writing Lab (OWL), for additional information about citing electronic sources.
