Citation, Documentation of Sources

Q. How do I in-text cite a quote from an organization’s website?

A. It’s best not to be too detailed or technical when citing in the text. Instead write something like ““According to a post on the Hyde Park Herald website on August 14, 2012, . . .” If it’s important, you can put the URL in parentheses, but if the URL is a yard long, it’s better to abbreviate to a reasonable root and let readers navigate for themselves: “According to a post on the Hyde Park Herald website (hpherald.com/category/editorials) on August 14, 2012, . . .”
