The good news is that a majority of databases offer a citation tool. Please check this document to locate a citation tool in the library databases. 

According to the MLA citation section of the "Writing and Citing Libguide" a sample citation of an article from an electronic database in MLA format should include:

Author's last name, first name. "Article title." Title of the journal/magazine the article was published in. Volume, issue year of publication and pages of the article. Name of database. Date the article was accessed.

Langhamer, Claire. “Love and Courtship in Mid-Twentieth-Century England.” Historical Journal. 50.1 (2007): 173-96. ProQuest. Web. 27 May 2009.
