Note: The webpage at this link and for others below present the newest MLA Guidelines (2009) - MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers (7th ed.) and the MLA Style Manual and Guide to Scholarly Publishing (3rd ed.). Under these guidelines, for a website entry in the List of Works Cited at the end of one's essay, one is no longer required to include the actual website address in the entry as long as one indicates that it is a "Web" source. However, for the IB Extended Essay and for all other IB related work, you are still required to include the actual website address in the Works Cited entry. For example,
International Baccalaureate Organization. "Extended Essay Guide (first exams 2009)."
February 2009. Online Curriculum Centre. 10 September 2009
The example above utilizes the previous MLA format [i.e. Handbook for Writers of Research Papers (6th ed.) and the MLA Style Manual and Guide to Scholarly Publishing (2nd ed.)]. However, you may still use the new MLA format but make sure that you include the full website address at the end of the entry similar to the previous MLA format. Or, you may simply use the previous MLA format completely. Microsoft Office also provides assistance for this.
