Citing

You should cite any picture, diagram, graph, etc that you pull from a website. Also cite specific numerical data or other specific facts that you find on a website. Use in-text citations as well as a bibliography page.


You do not need to cite information that is widely accepted or almost universally accepted.


Use APA citation style for both in-text citations and your bibliography page.
Use Noodlebib or Word to help you generate the citations.
