Tobin - Parasites: Getting Started

Online Resource

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) is a great reliable resource for this project.  Besides using a database you can search your parasite at http://www.cdc.gov/parasites/ 

Use EasyBib or NoodleTools to create your website MLA citations or follow the standard format noted on the right.   Select MLA 8th ed. 

Remember - academic databases will provide you with a formatted MLA citation. Refer to those pages in this guide for any revisions needed to change it to MLA 8th ed. 

MLA 8th ed. Website Citations

MLA 8th Website Format:

Last Name, First Name.  "Title of Article." Title of the Website, Publication Date, URL.    

Sample Citation: 

"Malaria".  Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 5 Oct. 2016, www.cdc.gov/malaria.  

Please note:

  • no authors were noted on the website so that element was not included
  • CDC could be listed as the author, but because they are also the title of the website I choose to not put them twice
  • publication date was found at the bottom of the article
  • remove the http:\\ from the citation
