Citation Tip

Let the databases do some of the work. Many of the databases on the Databases A-Z list have an internal feature that will produce a citation in various styles. Look for a link or icon titled "cite" or "save, print, email." You will have to check for accuracy, but it is a great way to get started.

MLA Citation & Business

Citation guides (see Citation Styles and Guides) will help with articles and other standard sources, but you may not find examples or specific guidelines for business sources.Just use your best judgment based on the guidelines. Here's an example for sources like Hoovers and globalEdge:

Hoover's, Inc. "Mars, Incorporated." Hoover's, 2014. Accessed 31 Oct. 2014.

globalEdge. "Romania." Michigan State University, 1994 - 2014, Accessed 31 Oct. 2014.
