Citing material used –
Specifying who is responsible for the content,
and when & how the material was published or distributed
Direct quote: Identify the material used by using quotation marks, if less than a sentence or two. Use a different font for a block quote of a paragraph or more. Allude to or name the source. Give the details of the source in a footnote, endnote or bibliography.
Indirect quote, or use of information sourced elsewhere: Indicate the author/s and publication year in the text. Give the details of the source in a footnote, endnote or bibliography.
Literary allusion: Name the author, without breaking the flow. Give further details of the source in a footnote or endnote.

Who is the author of a web page, or responsible for its contents?
Who has copyright?
Are there any other indications of responsibility or ownership?
