Some of the information needed to properly cite a dictionary entry may include:
Author of the Entry (If There is One)
Title of the Entry
Name of the Encyclopedia
Edition Number (If Any)
Date of the Edition
Other Publication Information
Volume and page numbers are not necessary because the entries in the source are arranged alphabetically and therefore are easy to locate.
Calvin Students: For more help on citing your item in this format, contact a Reference Librarian
Notice: As of the 7th edition of the MLA Handbook, including URLs is generally not recommended.
