Most databases make citations very easy because they have built in citation generators. While each database will look a little different, try to find the link to "Cite" or "Citations" (often found under "Tools" or "Toolbox" in the database website). This will help you generate the citations in the proper format (MLA, APA, or other).

As with any citation that is generated, verify that the citation is accurate by looking at a style guide, such as the Purdue Online Writing Lab's MLA Formatting Guide.
