Type the name of the author in inverted (last name first) format without periods. Do not use "and" between names; use a comma to separate more than one name, and place a period at the end.
If the website has one to six authors, list all of the authors in the order that they appear.
If the website has six or more authors, list the first three and then add "et al." at the end.
It is not unusual for there to be no authors listed on a website.

Do not capitalize the first letter of the first word of the sub-title, if there is one. Place a period at the end of the title.

Do not capitalize articles, prepositions of 3 or fewer letters (e.g. as, off), coordinating conjunctions (e.g. and, or, for, but, yet, so), or the "to" infinitives.
If there is an obvious date of publication, type the month, day, and four digit year and end with a period. Only enter the date information present on the page. For example, if there is no month or day, just type the year. Do not place in italics.
It is not uncommon for there to be no publication date. Do not use a copyright date in place of the publication date.
If there is a clear date when the page you are citing or the overall website has been updated or revised, type the word "Updated" and the month, day, and four digit date. Only enter the date information present on the page. For example, if there is no month or day, just type the year. Type a period at the end. Do not place in italics.
There may not be an updated date. Do not use a copyright date in place of the publication date.
Type the word "Accessed" and the month, day, and year that you viewed the page or section that you are citing. Type a period at the end. Do not place into italics.
You must always enter an accession date.
There is a space between each date as well as the preceding element and the URL that followed the last date.
Enter the URL exactly as it appears in your browser window. For example, do not add "http://" if it does not appear in the URL.
Do not place a period at the end of the URL unless it is present in the actual URL, which is highly unlikely. Do not change any formatting of the words in a URL even if they would normally look different in a sentence. For example, don't capitalize the word "america" if it appears in lower case letters in the URL as it does in this example.
