›› Bibliography Format

This page describes how to prepare a citation listing for a bibliography. You may need this information if you are doing research for a school report, or you need to cite this source in the proper format.

The author of this site can be listed as ConvertUnits.com in your bibliography.

You should also list the specific URL of the page you are referencing, as well as the date retrieved. This can be used in place of a "publishing date" which is more common for printed material. For online sources, you generally want to list the date of access instead.

Some examples of citations for different formats are listed below.


›› MLA 7th Web Document

Here's an example if you are citing the homepage. Make sure you adjust the page title and exact URL if you need to cite a different page. Use double quotes around the page title, and put the site's name in italics. The site's name is ConvertUnits.com, and this is equivalent to the author's name in the bibliography.

›› Turabian Web Page

This is another example if you are citing the homepage. Adjust the page title and exact URL to cite a different page. Use double quotes around the page title, and underline the site's name. The site's name is ConvertUnits.com, and this is equivalent to the author's name in the bibliography.
