How to do a Website Citation! By: Katie and Olivia
8B What are Citations? A citation is the act of citing; a quoting of an authoriative source for substantiation; a source so cited; a quotation. Why do We Cite Sources? One reason we cite sources is to give credit to those who provided us with the information. Also, we cite sources in case one needed to find where they got the information from. How to Cite an Entire Website Step 1: Begin with the name of the author. Write the last name of the author, then a comma, and then the first name followed by a period.

Example: Smyth, Mike. Step 2: Write the title of the website, italicized, and then a period.

Example:
Step 3: Write the sponsor if given, followed by a comma, then the date of publication or last update, followed by a period.
