Copy and Paste Database Citations

If the database does not provide you with an export to NT feature you can copy and paste the citation as demonstrated in this video. 

Cite a Website

When citing a website remember your goal is to try and locate as much information as possible to get your reader back to that source.  However, if no information is provided than that field would be left blank.
