Links From Hale Library These are databases that your library fees pay for. Use them!
I recommend "Lexis-Nexis" for book reviews published since 1980; try "Expanded Academic ASAP" for full-text articles and other references and don't overlook the "MLA Bibliography."

How to Cite This Page:

(for more specific information, see MLA's website on the topic; see also the B. Davis Schwartz Memorial Library's very helpful cite explaining how everything works using color-codes: http://www.cwpost.liunet.edu/cwis/cwp/library/workshop/citation.htm ):
 
According to guidelines in the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers (1999), a bibliographic citation looks like this: author, title, date page was published or last updated, institution affiliated with this site, date you accessed the page, and the URL. So, if you accessed Dean Hall's Homepage on 5 October 2001, and it had last been updated on 1 December 2000, your citation would look like this:
 

Hall, Dean. Dean Hall's Homepage. 1 Dec. 2000. Kansas

State University. 5 Oct. 2001<http://www-
personal.ksu.edu/~ddhh/>.
 
 
If you want to credit a particular section of a page, you accessed the page on December 12 and the page had last been updated December 1, you would do so like this:
 

Hall, Dean. "Research Guidelines" Dean Hall's HomePage.

Kansas State University. 1 December 2000.

12 Dec. 2000.<http://www-personal.ksu.edu/~ddhh/100
/research_guidelines.html>.
