General guidelines:

    • List entries alphabetically by author (if no author list title first)
    • Separate entries with periods
    • General format:
      Author, last name first. "Webpage title." Website title. Date published/updated. Organization/publisher. Date accessed. < URL >
Example:
Landsberger, Joseph. “Citing Websites." Study Guides and Strategies . 12 May 2005. University of X. 13 May 2005. < http://www.studygs.net/citation.htm >.


ALSO!
When citing something in your paper, include parenthesis before the period and write the author's last name and title of web page!!

Example:

Penguins are the most endangered species on the planet (Spiezio, "Penguins Dying").
