Citing Internet Sources

  1. 1. Wading through the Web How to Cite Internet Sources
  2. 2. Wading through the Web Citing Internet Sources What does it mean to “Cite your sources”? It means telling people where you got your information. Just as you list books and encyclopedias in your bibliography, you must also include the sources of information you got from the Internet. Why do you need to cite sources? Citing your sources allows others to find the same information you found.
  3. 3. Wading through the Web Citing Internet Sources What information do you need to cite an Internet source which you use in your project?  The name of the site and the author (Who made the website? A company? An organization? An individual?)  The day you found the information  The web address or URL  The copyright date for the website (usually found at the bottom of the homepage)
  4. 4. Wading through the Web Citing Internet Sources Your bibliographic entry for an Internet source should include whichever parts are available in the order listed below. Let’s walk through an example. Look at the following website on Vasco da Gama. http://library.thinkquest.org/4034/dagama.html  Author – No specific author is listed  Title of the Article– Vasco da Gama  Title of the Page -- Explorers of the Millennium  Title of the Website -- ThinkQuest  Web Address -- http://library.thinkquest.org/4034/dagama.html  Copyright Date – 1998 (found by clicking on “About this Site”)  Date Found -- March 11, 2008
  5. 5. Wading through the Web Citing Internet Sources You will use this information to create the entry for your bibliography. Once you have the information you need, you can use a website like Son of Citation Machine to help you create your entry. The entry for this site would look like this: "Vasco da Gama." Explorers of the Millennium. 1998. ThinkQuest. 11 Mar 2009 http://library.thinkquest.org/4034/dagama.html.
  6. 6. Wading through the Web Citing Internet Sources Now try to do one on your own. Go to : http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/historic_figures/gama_vasco_ Find all the information that you would need for a bibliographic entry and fill it in the work sheet. Then, try to create that entry. You can either follow the format in this presentation or use the Son of Citation Machine website to help you create the entry.
