Information You Need

To write a citation for a webpage on a website you will need the following pieces of information:

  • Date the site was last updated. If no date is given, use (n.d.). Do not use Copyright date.
  • Title of the site or page
    • Site Name (if the author and the site name are the same omit the site name from the source element to avoid repetition)
  • URL

Note: Do not create in-text citations or references when referring to a whole website. See link below for further information.
