Citing Internet Sources. Identifying page numbers or paragraph numbers for Internet sources can be problematic. As you weave these sources into the fabric of your essay, keep the following tips in mind:
 The page number on printouts will not always be the same.
 You should not count the number of paragraphs and cite a paragraph number.
 You should not put down a paragraph, page or screen number for an Internet source unless the paragraphs or the screens are already numbers or unless page numbers for the original print version are provided online.
 If paragraphs are numbered on the screen, treat them like page numbers, citing the paragraphs you reference.
 If pagination of the original printed work is cited on the screen, cite this original pagination in your text.
Most of the research you do will be conducted on a computer rather than in a library (especially if you are a Lake Campus student). Revisit the above tips regularly so that you know how to properly format online sources.
