13 An example of a book entry: Author’s last name, first name. Book Title. City of publication: Publishing company, publication date. Important: you must indent the second and third lines of any entry.

14 An example of an encyclopedia entry: Author’s last name, first name. “Title of article.” Name of Encyclopedia. Year of Edition. Volume number, page(s). (If no author is given, start with title.)

15 An example of an online encyclopedia entry: “Title of article.” Title of Encyclopedia. Version.. (Date you accessed the website).

16 An example of an Internet source: Author’s name, if known (last, first). “Title of Article.” [Online] Document date (if available).Website address (URL) (Visited: Date you accessed the website).

17 Citing an Internet image source: Artist/Photographer’s name, if known, (last,first). “Image/Photo Title.” Image Description. Web Page Title. Update/Last Date. Date you accessed the website. Website address (URL).

18 The Way We Cite An Internet Image Source: Right click on an image. Go to “properties” and copy the URL that is given. This at least gives a source for your image. (It is often difficult to find everything you need to do a good image citation.)
