Citing the NL Heritage Web Site







How to Cite the Newfoundland and Labrador Heritage Web Site

Citing online documents can be confusing. As an aid to students and others who use our web site we offer the following suggestions.

Footnotes and Endnotes

1. Citing an article with a known author.

First Name Surname, “Title of article,” Name of web site (Article copyright date) URL (date of access).

For example, if a user read “The Second World War, 1939-1945” on the Newfoundland and Labrador Heritage Web Site on 26 March 2007, he or she would cite it this way:

Sean Cadigan, “The Second World War, 1939-1945,” Newfoundland and Labrador Heritage Web Site (2007) http://www.heritage.nf.ca/law/wwii.html (26 March 2007).

2. Citing an article with an unnamed author.

“Title of article,” Name of web site (Article copyright date) URL (date of access).

For example, if an user read “Natural Environment,” on our site on 3 August 2006, he or she would cite it this way:

“Natural Environment,” Newfoundland and Labrador Heritage Web Site (1997) http://www.heritage.nf.ca/environment/default.html (3 Aug. 2006).

3. Citing a revised or updated article.

First Name Surname, “Title of article,” Name of web site (Article revised or updated date) URL (date of access).

For example:

Jenny Higgins and Luke Callanan, “Merchant Mariners,” Newfoundland and Labrador Heritage Web Site (Rev. March 2007) http://www.heritage.nf.ca/law/merchant_marines.html (2 April 2007).
