This depends on the style your instructor prefers (MLA, Chicago,
Turabian), but Diana
Hacker's site and a site
from the Duke University libraries provide some good examples.
Hacker's site also includes examples of in-text citation.
The MLA site also has good examples at http://www.mla.org/publications/style/style_faq/style_faq4.
Please note that although your Works Cited page should use hanging
indents (i.e., indent the second line five spaces more than the
first line), this can't be done easily on a web page. Also, the
web address URL may be on a separate line since the space here
is limited, but it should not be (or does not have to be) on
a separate line in your document. Adjust your formatting accordingly.
None of the examples at MLA or the other sites listed exactly
addresses the materials at this site, so here are some possibilities.
