What's a Properly Cited Reference?
Many assignments in this class require that you cite your references. This is easy if you are citing a book or traditional journal article--for instance, our book would be:
Belk, C. and V. B. Maier. 2012. Biology: Science for Life, Fourth Edition. Benjamin-Cummings.
Correctly citing a website, however, often confuses students. Here are examples of both incomplete and full website citations:
"MLA Style." Write Source. 2008. http://www.thewritesource.com/mla.htm. (Downloaded March 18, 2008.)
Author [if known]. "Title." Last date updated or revised [if known]. URL (web address) of page. (Date page was accessed).
In this course, we are not so much concerned about how you punctuate your list of references, but you should include all of the above information (along with a working hyperlink) in your reference.
