How to Cite a Database Online in MLA

MLA 8 format does not specify how to cite an entire database specifically. Therefore, we recommend citing a database as you would cite and entire website.


Last, First M. “Article Title.” Database Name, Database Publisher, Date Month Year Published, URL.


Roberts, David. “The Total Work of Art in European Modernism.” Ithaca History Database, Cornell UP, 2011, www.ithacahistory.org-modern-history

Make sure to:

  • Always include the URL where you accessed the database in the citation.
