Help with citing CDC.gov website MLA style?

Asked by stemnyjones (3969points) March 26th, 2011

I’m trying to cite a webpage on www.cdc.gov.

Automatic citations machines will not help because I can’t find all of the information that they are looking for, and the citation it gives me looks really incomplete.

I need to know how to cite the following page both on the works cited page AND in-text.

http://www.cdc.gov/salmonella/general/

Someone help please?

This site gives the most comprehensive breakdown of how to do it manually, in my opinion.

If not, I don’t know if you tried bibme.org or easybib.com yet, but they’re supposed to be good auto-formatting sites.

Hope I could help!

Oooh. I had used bibme.org before, but I couldn’t find it this time, and it has a tab just for websites.

Thanks so much ^_^

No problem! :] Anything to lessen the horrible load that MLA citations place upon us!

Remember to use n.p. if no publisher name is available and n.d. if no publishing date is given.

Editor, author, or compiler name (if available). Name of Site. Version number. Name of institution/organization affiliated with the site (sponsor or publisher), date of resource creation (if available). Medium of publication. Date of access.

Thanks, @MyNewtBoobs (nice username, haha). And yeah, MLA is a pain in the ass, but what’s worse is I haven’t written a paper requiring citation in over 5 years, and all of a sudden this semester I have an MLA paper due in one class and a APA paper due in another. I’m going to end up getting them confused. xP
