Description

This article is from the Libraries FAQ, by Anthony Wilson paw@iglou.com with numerous contributions by others.

5.7 How do I cite information I find on the Internet?

As yet, there is no agreed upon method of citing Internet sources, but
most proposals are based on the MLA and APA styles of citation. Ann
Robinson's "Citing Internet Sources" page,
http://tigger.cc.uic.edu/~aerobin/citing.html , has links to several
sites which discuss citation formats. For a critique of some of the
proposed methods of Internet citation, and suggestions for a better
model, see Andrew Harnack and Gene Kleppinger's "Beyond the MLA
Handbook", http://falcon.eku.edu/honors/beyond-mla/

Some examples of Internet citation:

In the MLA style
Wilson, Anthony. Libraries FAQ. v. 1.5. Online. Available:
http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Acropolis/1107/index.html. Feb. 16,
1997.

In the APA style
Wilson, Anthony (1996). Libraries FAQ. (v. 1.5), [Online]. Available:
http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Acropolis/1107/index.html. [Feb.16,
1997].
