Articles in a Database or in Print and Videos in a Database (not a YouTube--see the next page for that)


**This is much easier if you use the cite tool within the database. Look for the Cite button.
This is the basic format. Remember, some articles have multiple authors, so be sure you are following the right pattern.


 Author Last name, First name. “Title of the Article." Title

      of the Journal, Magazine, or  Newspaper
,  vol.#,

      no. #, Date, pages found on. Title of the Database, Url

      of Article. (look for the link symbol).
