MLA Format

Could someone show me a proper example of how to cite a webpage in MLA format? Where all the periods go and such.

im citing an editorial from lexis nexis/new york times that does not have a listed author, what should i do?

ALso, i have an article from the ACLU w/o an author, who should i give "credit to" for now i just have "aclu" in my paper.


If you're feeling spiffy, you could do books and such too.

MLA format from 1997:

WWW source example:

Limb, Peter. "Relationships between Labour & African Nationalist/Liberation Movements in Southern Africa." [http://neal.ctstateu.edu/history/wor...es/limb-1.html]. May 1992.

(the url should NOT be underlined.)

Editorial source example:

"The Last Chapter in a Sordid Affair". Editorial. <U>The Toronto Star</U>. 5 Dec. 1991: A22.

as you can see, when something is unsigned, you just skip the author portion entirely, and go right to the title.

now lastly:

Book, one author, source example:

Blumenson, John. <U>Ontario Architecture</U>. Toronto: Fitzhenry and Whiteside, 1990.

Thats the general, hope it helps because I took this time to type it in.

note that the tab references are just for overflow, you dont have to add a carriage return after the article name :P
the tab references are also just that, reference, the indentation is the same as anything else.

hope it helps... and good luck
