Best practices for citing on Web pages

1. Keep good track of your sources. Zotero is a great reference manager (you can get set up here), but you can also make a simple spreadsheet, like this example. 

2. Citation is important, a webpage is still an academic piece of writing.  Chicago and MLA are typically used for writing philosophy. For easy to use guidelines:  Chicago Manual of Style Online, or MLA Style Guide from the University of Wisconsin.
