Citing Websites as Sources

I have seldom cited websites for sources, but there are occasions where original material is found on a website and you must be sure to cite these sources appropriately.

Website sources must be treated the same as you would a book.

The name for the particular page is capitalized and written in italics within quotation marks, just as you would a book source. The website address is listed just as you would a publisher.

Be sure to give the author credit if he/she is known.

Any quotes from the cite must also be placed in italics and within quotation marks.

These are just the basic guidelines for citing websites as sources.

As always, give credit where credit is due!

Till next time!
