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.
Google Images is NOT a cite-able website! You would not cite "Google Images" any more than you would cite "Google" "Yahoo," or "Baidu." Google is a search tool to find websites. If you find an image that you would like to use through Google Images, you must click through to the original website and cite THAT.
Found your map or chart in a book? Cite it as a work in an anthology:
Seager, Joni. "Beauty." The Penguin Atlas of Women in the World, 4th ed., Penguin, 2009, pp. 52-53. Map.
Found it online?:
U.S. Central Intelligence Agency. Iceland (Small Map). Perry-Castañeda Library Map Collection, University of Texas at Austin, 2013, www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/cia13/iceland_sm_2013.gif. Accessed 27 Mar. 2014. Map.
American Veterinary Medical Association. "Table 1204: Household Pet Ownership: 2006." Statistical Abstract of the United States, 129th ed., U.S. Census Bureau, 2010, 14 July 2010, www.census.gov/compendia/statab/2010/tables/10s1204.pdf.
In general, treat a table like a section in a book, but add the appropriate descriptive label (Table).
Citing one table from a particular source?:
U.S. Bureau of the Census. "Series D 13-25. Labor Force, by Age and Sex: 1890 to 1957." Historical Statistics of the United States, Colonial Times to 1957, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1961. Table.
Citing more than one table from the same source? Use the name of the table in each parenthetical citation and cite the book in your works cited:
U.S. Bureau of the Census. Historical Statistics of the United States, Colonial Times to 1957. U.S. Department of Commerce, 1961.
