Cite a website with hard to find author or date info

Sometimes it can be difficult to find information essential to a citation on a webpage, like an author or a date. Here are some steps you can take to make up for this lack of information.

- If there is no author listed, use the title of the webpage or the article you are viewing.
- Try to search for the date near the bottom of the webpage. Look for a message regarding "webpage last updated..."
- Make sure to include retrieval information in your citation. This means to include the date you viewed the webpage and the URL of the webpage.

These steps will make your citation more clear and precise!
