  • Including the date of access is optional. MLA strongly recommends including it if the source provides no date specifying when it was produced or published. The second example above shows a website that does not have a publication date, so the date of access is used instead. Note that the placement of the two dates is different.
  • The publisher's name can often be found in a copyright notice at the bottom of the homepage or on a page that gives information about the site. If the author is not known, or is the same as the publisher, then list it only once (see second example).
  • Do not include https:// when listing a URL. If a "permalink" or DOI is available, include it instead as it is a more stable link to the resource.
