About Citing Web Sites

A citation to website content can often be limited to a mention in the text or in a note (“As of July 19, 2008, the McDonald’s Corporation listed on its website. . .”).

If a more formal citation is desired, it may be styled as in the examples below. Because such content is subject to change, include an access date or, if available, a date that the site was last modified.

1. “Google Privacy Policy,” last modified March 11, 2009,
2. “McDonald’s Happy Meal Toy Safety Facts,” McDonald’s Corporation, accessed July 19, 2008,
3. “Google Privacy Policy.”
4. “Toy Safety Facts.”

Using Government documents can prove valuable to your research and are available in many different formats and from various sources. It can be challenging to cite these sources. The Chicago Manual of Style provides examples and rules for many, but not all, types of Canadian government documents.

Simon Fraser University Library provides an extensive and comprehensive list of CMOS specific format for government documents.
