MLA Works Cited 8th Edition

The 8th edition rules that everything you could want to cite (a journal article, a chapter in a book, a tweet, a YouTube video) has the same basic core elements. If a source is missing an element (like author, other contributors, version, number, etc), you simply skip it and move on to the next one. Be aware of punctuation and remember that most of the time the "Title of Source" will appear in quotation marks while the Title of Container will appear in italics.
