Important reminders for links for LCC's Comp II students:

Every time you find a source using an online database, be sure to record enough information to complete an entry on the Words Cited page. Not all information will always appear on a printed copy of the source. Here are the elements of the entry that you must have:

  • Author

  • Title of the article or webpage

  • Publication information, including full date and page numbers, of articles, essays, or stories that appear in print

  • Title of the periodical (magazine, newspaper, or journal) or website

  • Date of publication or update for articles, essays, or stories that appear only on the web

  • Name of the database used to view or to acquire a copy of an article, essay, or story

  • Date that an article, essay, or story was accessed on the web

Here are some websites that list criteria for evaluating websites for research purposes:
