There are a number of systems you can use when citing a website (MLA, APA, Chicago Manual of Style etc.). If you’re not sure which system you need to use for your assignment go for The Chicago Manual of Style – a safe bet.

For citing in The Chicago Manual of Style you need to have one source entry as a footnote, and the same entry repeated in your bibliography. The format of both entries should be:

Last Name, First Name. “Title of Web Page.” Website name in italics. Publication date and/or access date if available. URL.

  • Last Name/First Name is always “King, Warren”
  • Publication date is always 2004, unless it’s a blog article, in which case use the date from near the top of the page.

So an example citation for this page would be:

King, Warrern “How To Cite”, 2004, accessed 1/1/20013.
