Question Mark Beanie

Where can I find the date of a Webpage?

Examples of Webpages

Usually the date is available at the bottom of the Web page.  It may state last updatedlast modified or last reviewed.


If there is no date available then use (n.d.) for no date.


Citing Websites

About Citing Websites:                                                                                                                                                              When you are attempting to cite an online document or page that is more than one Web page, then cite a URL that links to the home page or entry page for the document. Remember, if there isn't a date available for the document use (n.d.) for no date.

For each type of source in this guide, both the general form and an example will be provided.

The following format will be used:

In-Text Citation (Paraphrase) - entry that appears in the body of your paper when you express the ideas of a researcher or author using your own words.  For more tips on paraphrasing check out The OWL at Purdue.

In-Text Citation (Quotation) - entry that appears in the body of your paper after a direct quote.

References - entry that appears at the end of your paper.

Information on citing and several of the examples were drawn from the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (7th ed.).
