MLA Citation Style, 8th Edition

This guide will provide rules and examples for using MLA citation style.

Images from the Web

In general, you will want to look for the following pieces of information when you are citing an image:

Creator’s Last name, First name. “Title of the digital image.” Title of the website, First name Last name of any contributors, Version (if applicable), Number (if applicable), Publisher, Publication date, URL. Access Date.

If you cannot find the information, you will simply skip to the next piece of the citation. For example, if you cannot find the creator, start the citation with the title. If the image does not have a title, describe the image instead.
