Citing websites is probably one of the hardest resource types to cite properly. Often this is because it is hard to find the necessary information that must be included in a citation from an organizations website. Below are the basic components of a Reference list entry for a website and information about where you can usually find each section on a website.
As a general rule, if you cannot find a piece of information, such as a date, leave that information blank. Do not make something up! In the case where you cannot identify the author of a website use the organization as the author. For most of the websites you will be accessing the organization (e.g. World Health Organization) will be the author and your Reference list citation entry will begin with that.

The basic format for siting images is as follows:
Author [Role of Author]. (Year image was created). Title of work [Type of work], Retrieved from URL (address of website)
It's likely you will not be able to find all this information for web images. Try to find as much as you can, but if you cannot locate the information follow the formats below.
Electronic Image (No Author)
Title of work [Type of work]. (Year image was created). Retrieved from URL (address of website)
Electronic Image (No Author, No Title, No Date)
[Format and subject of work]. Retrieved from URL (address of website)
