Q. How do I cite a source (article) from an online database
Depending on the database, there may be help for citing your source. For example, Ebsco databases have links on the right side of the main record of an article. Click on "Cite" to see citations for that article. The Thompson Gale databases provide a citation at the end of the article. Citation examples and online citation builders can be found here for MLA and here for APA.
