MLA Guidelines for Electronic Resources

                                   MLA Format for Web-based Resources


For web-based information, URLs are now optional, but many professors still require them. For the purpose of showing you how to do them with URLs if so required, we have included an example below for the item that lists just a web page. If not required by your professor, just leave the URL off your works cited.
