How do I cite an item or article on the Library's website when I can't find an author's name or a date of publication?

The Library of Congress website connects users to content areas created by the Library’s many experts. In some cases, content can be posted without a clear indication of author, title, publisher or publication date. Look for available clues and give as much information as possible, including the URL and date accessed, whenever possible.

See Citing Primary Resources for examples of citations in several different styles (APAChicago, and MLA)  for different types of materials on the Library's website.
