Website Creation Guide

Overview of website creation support resources

Video production resources

Citation best practices for website:

Cite every source you use in your project, including your textbook, articles, photos, and videos. When in doubt, cite it. (Why?)

Find the original source when you cite something. For example:

  • Cite the original reference, not the Wikipedia page.
  • Cite the image source, not Google Images.
  • Cite the original paper, not a citation in another source.

Pick a citation style and stick with it, or use the citation style required by your professor. (Why are there so many different styles?)


Direct quotes or statistics. Use an “in-video” citation (a text box on the screen, a bar at the bottom, or add it to a voiceover) when either directly quoting a source or referencing a statistic that would not be readily known.
