You cite a LibGuide as you would any regular website. Here are the general rules:

Resources on the web that are not released on a regular schedule such as eBooks, most web sites, and some database resources are examples of nonperiodical publications. Please note that while MLA wants each of the elements listed below for web that you cite, many web pages do not have all the elements available. If any of the elements below are unavailable, skip to the next item. If the citation runs longer than one line, remember to format it double spaced with a hanging indent.

The Basics

Author's name. Title of the work (italicized if the work is independent; in roman type and quotation marks if the work is part of a larger work). Title of the main Web site (italicized), if different from the title of the work). Version if available. Publisher or sponsor of the site—if not available use N.p., Date of publication if available—n.d. if no date is available. Web. Date of access.
