Date of Access - No longer required but often helpful

Clipart of a calendarInternet resources can be unstable -- one day they are there and the next day they may be gone. This can be particularly true for websites, blogs, video hosting platforms like YouTube, and more. Including the date you accessed the online item provides information about which version you utilized. Providing the date of access is also helpful when a date of publication is not available for an online resource.


See page 53 in the Manual and look for an example of this in the Works Cited sample page above.
