Generally, to cite a World Wide Web page, your students should provide the author’s name, last name first (if known); the full title of the work, in quotation marks; the title of the complete work (if applicable), in italics; any version or file numbers; and the date of the document or last revision (if available). Next, list the full URL, followed by the date of access in parentheses.

Here is an example of a cited web page:

Burka, Lauren P. “A Hypertext History of Multi-User Dimensions.” MUD History. 1993.http://www.utopia.com/talent/lpb/muddex/essay (Jan. 8, 2000).

There are many resources describing how to cite web pages and other online works. MLA-style guidelines can be found online at the Columbia Guide to Online Style. This site shows many examples of how to cite online works.
