Today, students learned how to do citations on Wikipedia. If you were absent, you will learn this tomorrow.

HW: Finish slideshow by tomorrow.

Here are the codes we used:

Open up Microsoft Word

Red = required

Blue = only one or two students will use this

Copy and paste into Word the five templates below:

***

NOVEL/BOOK
{{cite book
 | last = | first = | authorlink =
 | coauthors =
 | title = | publisher =
 | series =
 | volume =
 | edition =
 | date = | location = | pages = | language = | url =
 | doi =
 | id =
 | isbn =
 | mr =
 | zbl =
 | jfm = }}

TEMPLATE 2: JOURNAL/MAGAZINE
{{cite journal
 | last = | first =  | authorlink =  | coauthors =
 | title = | journal =
 | volume = | issue =
 | pages =
 | publisher =
 | location = | date =
 | language =
 | url =
 | jstor =
 | issn =
 | doi =
 | id =
 | mr =
 | zbl =
 | jfm =
 | accessdate = }}

NEWSPAPER
{{cite news
 | last = | first =
 | coauthors =
 | title = | newspaper = | location =
 | pages =
 | language =
 | publisher =
 | date = | url = | accessdate = }}

WEBSITE
{{cite web
 | last = | first =
 | authorlink = | coauthors =
 | title =
 | work =
 | publisher =
 | date = | url =
 | format =
 | doi =
 | accessdate = }}

VIDEO
{{cite video
 | people = | title =
 | medium =
 | publisher = | location =
 | date = | url = }}
***

If you are using the same source for multiple quotes: at the beginning of the first time you insert the citation before the {{, copy and paste

replace <ref> with <ref name=nicknameforsource>

Instead of nicknameforsource, write the author’s last name or the name of the journal.

Then, the next time you use the source for a quote, you don’t have to put in the entire citation again. Just put in the reference box

<ref name=nicknameofsource/>
