Link and Citations (text)

Once you've evaluated and selected an article, you will need to copy a link to the article and create a citation for it,

1.  Copy the URL from the top of the search screen.  If you found a reputable article using Yahoo! or Google News (or similar), you may need to refresh your screen and then copy the URL.  Otherwise, the link may go back to the main news list and not the article.  Copy your URL into a new tab to check the link before closing your article.

2.  You will need to create a citation for your article.  Go to the "Cite Articles" tab and choose your citation style.  Once you've selected MLA or APA, Choose "How Do I Cite?" and select "Newspaper Articles."  Scroll down for information about citing from a website,  If you found a news article in a magazine, select "Magazine Articles" instead.
