In the MLA 8th edition, a work's format ("book," "webpage," "database article," etc.) isn't the most important consideration (if you're not sure where to start in NoodleTools, check here).
Cite everything by using the MLA list of Core Elements (info common to most works) in this specific order:
If you have looked hard for a piece of information but cannot find it, skip it.
There is often more than one way to correctly cite a source. If you have a question about citation, ask Ms. Biancolo or your teacher.
The following is an example of a good citation. In this example, my article only has the highlighted elements, so I skip the ones my article doesn't have:
