      How to Cite a Web Source?

      I found two articles on The Lucidity Institue's website. One by Frederick Van Eeden and another by Stephen LaBerge. They both have sources at the top of the page from another source (editions). How would I cite this kind of source in a speech? Would I mention the website "The Lucidity Institue" or the book?

      This is for an informative speech on Lucid Dreaming.

      Any help asap would be great. Thanks.

      I would say just mention the book. As the Lucidity Institute was citing it as a source as well, the credit would need to go to the original source (the book). That's just my opinion, though. I don't know if there is any standard rule for it.

      Thanks Oneironaut, sounds good!

      I'm gonna go ahead a post a favor under this thread, so hopefully someone sees it.

      I want some feedback on the speech, mostly for what I should cut out. I don't have anyone with me at the moment to help out, so if there are any volunteers. It's in a Word document. I just want someone to read it and tell me what they think by highlighting and what not. I'll send you some points if you want, for the time. =)

      Thanks.

      Whenever I've cited something from a website, I've just supplied the URL and the revision (time the information was taken from there), and the name of the organisation if applicable.

      I gotta agree with O. Site the book...if you happen to bring up something else related to it, you can always mention the site later on to make it look like you've researched things even more. In my speech class as long as we mentioned two different legitimate sources we were good to go.

      The way I learned it you could actually choose which one to pick, but you'd generally wind up with the book. If you took a URL you'd have to add the date when you accessed it and so on, at least that's how I remember it, but it's been a while.

      Son of Citation Machine. Google that. There are specific guidelines for citations based on the medium it is being presented in. Works like a charm.
