Online Article Mla Bibliography Page

Website – A collection of informational pages on the Internet that typically include an article title, author and publisher.

MLA 7 guidelines for online sources do not require listing the URL, unless otherwise specified by your instructor. They do require, however, that you include the publisher or sponsor of the website. Keep in mind that the author or sponsor of a website is commonly a corporation or government entity, rather than an individual.
