CITING AND THE INTERNET

With such a wide variety of information available on the Internet, students are often left guessing their way through the documentation process. Here, then, is help for citing some sources that students frequently use.


ONLINE DATABASES

Devidio, Leslie. "California's Year-Round Classrooms." Wired Magazine 24 June 1996. Online. America Online. 17 July


LEXUS-NEXUS AND PROQUEST

If you use Lexus-Nexus or ProQuest, remember that all the information on that database exists (or existed) as a printed text. So, just cite it appropriately as a newspaper article, a magazine article, or whatever it happens to be. You don't need to indicate that it came from the Lexus-Nexus or ProQuest database.
