In Reply to: How would this site be cited in a bibliography? posted by ESC on October 03, 2004

: Someone posted this question earlier. I am just not sure how to do this. Can anyone help?

: And here is what I found online:

: Web discussion forum posting

: To document a posting to a Web discussion forum , provide the following information:

: Author's name
: Title of posting, in quotation marks
: Date of posting
: URL, in angle brackets
: Date of access, in parentheses

: 1. Daniel LaLiberte, "HyperNews Instructions," 23 May 1996, (24 May 1996).

: 2. Art Saffran, "It's Not That Hard," 5 January 1996, (24 May 1996).


: Footnotes for Internet sources follow this basic pattern, omitting any items that are not available:

: Author of the actual item cited (often not given)
: Title or heading of the item (in quotation marks)
: Name of the website (underlined)
: Name of the site's editor or complier (if any), with "ed."
: Date of electronic publication or latest update of the site
: Name of the organization responsible for the site
: Date that you downloaded the information
: Full Internet address (in angle brackets)
: There are no page numbers to cite in footnotes for Internet material. (Do not refer to the page numbers of your printout sheets.)

: When you have to divide an Internet address onto two lines, split it after a slash or before a period.

: If your computer turns the Internet address into a blue hyperlink, cancel this. (Click on the address with the left mouse button: go to Hyperlink; click on Remove Hyperlink)
