MLA Style (8th Ed.): Location

Location

The location element refers to page number or page numbers in a print resource or the web address (URL) or a digital object identifier (DOI) for online resources.

 

For a single page, use p., for a range of pages use pp.

 

If available, cite the DOI rather than a URL.

 

"If your source offers URLs that it says are stable (sometimes called permalinks), use them in your entry. (MLA Handbook, 8th ed., p. 48)

 

This element ends with a period.
