A website is a collection of informational pages on the Internet. Creating a citation for your website in MLA format usually requires you to identify the website author, website title, website publisher, and the date you accessed the information. You'll also need to remember the date you used the website on your bibliography.

    It doesn t necessarily have to be a direct quote, but if there are specifics in your paper from a particular source, you should cite it. And don t forget that if it s quoted or not, you do need to give credit where credit is due in your paper as well. For an easy example, say you wanted to state the theory of natural selection. You would have to reference the fact that it was Darwin s original statement. Book Goddess: Was that really part of the question, though?

    Thanks for your question. There are a couple of excellent online resources to help you. Purdue University s Online Writing Lab -- http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/12/ Long Island University s MLA Citation Style page -- http://www.liu.edu/CWIS/CWP/library/workshop/citmla.htm I found these by going to http://www.google.com/ and searching for "mla works cited".
