LSBU Harvard Referencing: Webpage

Best Practice tips

It’s best to start your research by using LSBU databases before searching the free web. Remember that anyone can publish anything on the web, so you will need to evaluate the quality and reliability of a web page or web document before you refer to it in your assignments.


Date

If you cannot find a date on the webpage you can use the copyright date. If the copyright is written as a date range (e.g. 2007-2017) use the latest date.
