Cite Your Sources

The basics of style

The key to citing any source is to:

  1. be consistent in style and format;
  2. have a clear and neat format;
  3. present sufficient information for a reader to identify and find the work or cited passage;
  4. NOT make up your own rules.

For citing material from the Web, two additional pieces of information are usually needed:

  1. the electronic address or URL of the site (e.g. http://...)
  2. the date you accessed the site or database
