See the MLA Guide on the library website by following this path: > Research > How to Research > Research Tips & Tricks > Cite tab.

It opens to the Guide that uses the 8th edition of MLA . We also have a link to the 7th edition. Use the edition that your teacher wants.

The APA Guide is also on our website, located below the MLA Guide.

In general for your specific question, we assume that the citation you want is for the list of Works Cited or References at the end of your paper, and not an in-text citation within the paper. Then, you have to cite the website, no matter what the content is that the website contains.

To cite this article that came from a book in a direct way, you would have to have that book that has that article. But because it was found on a website, the website information is what you cite.

In general, if there is not an individual author or authors, you begin with the title of the website (7th edition of MLA and APA 6th edition) or the title of the source (8th edition of MLA).
