MLA -- Citing articles

Library article databases provide MLA citations.  Check for errors and make changes using the examples below.  Check with your instructor to see if they want you to use URLs for library database articles. 

Tweak your citations so they follow the format below:
  • JOURNAL article from a database:
  • MAGAZINE article from a database:

  • NEWSPAPER article from a database:

  • NEWSPAPER article with no author from a database:
    • If no author, start with title.  If no page #, leave it out.
