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:
Cunningham, Paige Winfield. "The Hopeful News About Moderna's Coronavirus Vaccine is Extremely Preliminary." Washington Post, 19 May 2020. Gale In Context: Opposing Viewpoints, link.gale.com/apps/doc/A624329670/OVIC?u=mlin_c_woracd&sid=bookmark-OVIC&xid=e373f807.
Go-Go's. "Throw Me A Curve (Live from Central Park 2001)." YouTube, uploaded by GoGosUnsealed, 17 Aug 2010, www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ard1irHU72U.
Beyoncé. Pretty Hurts. Beyoncé, www.beyonce.com/video/. Video.
Include the file format if it is important to your use of the source (like comparing sound quality):
Lady Gaga. "Born this Way." iTunes app, Interscope Records, 2011. MP3.
Citing a song?:
Miranda, Lin-Manuel. "My Shot." Hamilton, Atlantic, 2015. CD.
Citing the lyrics?:
Miranda, Lin-Manuel. Lyrics to "My Shot." Genius, 2015, genius.com/Lin-manuel-miranda-my-shot-lyrics.
