The information included in this type of citation will depend on what is available. Optimally, your citation would look like the following:

Last Name, First Name of Author. Title of Publication. Editor Name (or Compiler, or Translator Name). Edition (or Release, or Version). Place: Publisher Name, Date of Publication. Medium consulted. 

Please note that if the author's name is not available, you should indicate the editor, compiler, or translator at the beginning of the citation instead. Also, remember to format your citations with hanging indent. If some of the above information is not available to you, then cite the information that you do have. 

For example:

Sam, Samantha, ed. Singing in the Desert: A Dedication to the Sun. 1997 ed. New York: Old Old Publisher, 1997. CD-ROM. 


Information derived from: MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers. 7th ed. New York: MLA, 2009. Print.
