Harvard Referencing - SETU Libraries Waterford Guide: Finding the date of a web page

Finding the date of a web page

On some pages, a date may be given at the top of the page. 

If no date is listed there, scroll down to the bottom of the web page and look for a copyright or "last updated" date.

Occasionally there may be information on when pages were produced in other parts of the website.

Note: You should not use web pages for academic work which have no obvious author, title or date.
