  7. Remember when you are using a website that you enter the date you accessed not the date the article was written.

    1. Dr. Chipman,

      When citing a website, to my understanding, we are supposed to use both the date the article was published AND the date it was accessed. However, if the publish date of the article is not available, then we only need to put the access date. Also, the date of access goes after the URL, while the date of publication goes before it. (What I have been using is Purdue Owl, and it has the up-to-date format for MLA 8 – I chose the electronic sources article for my citation in my main comment).

      Your student,
      Kelly :)

    2. Thank you Kelly, I stand corrected. I have posted the information from Purdu OWL you referenced.

      Basic Style for Citations of Electronic Sources (Including Online Databases)

      Here are some common features you should try and find before citing electronic sources in MLA style. Not every Web page will provide all of the following information. However, collect as much of the following information as possible both for your citations and for your research notes:

      Author and/or editor names (if available)
      Article name in quotation marks.
      Title of the website, project, or book in italics.
      Any version numbers available, including editions (ed.), revisions, posting dates, volumes (vol.), or issue numbers (no.).
      Publisher information, including the publisher name and publishing date.
      Take note of any page numbers (p. or pp.) or paragraph numbers (par. or pars.).
      URL (without the https://) DOI or permalink.
      Date you accessed the material (Date Accessed).
      Remember to cite containers after your regular citation. Examples of containers are collections of short stories or poems, a television series, or even a website. A container is anything that is a part of a larger body of works.
      Use the following format:

      Author. Title. Title of container (self contained if book), Other contributors (translators or editors), Version (edition), Number (vol. and/or no.), Publisher, Publication Date, Location (pages, paragraphs and/or URL, DOI or permalink). 2nd container’s title, Other contributors, Version, Number, Publisher, Publication date, Location, Date of Access (if applicable).
