A website produced by the students of Women and Wester Culture, Spring 1999. (links) WS 200 Syllabus, Faculty, Hypertextbook, Assignments, Create your Group Web Page, Demo Page.

If you want to quote from the paper itself, using the student's orginial ideas then you must cite them as such. What you cannot do is simply use them without citation. That would be plagiarism and cheating!

Web citations usually contain the author, title, date of publication, the URL, and date accessed. Here is a citation example for this particular paper:

Pohl, Stacey. "The Struggle of Women in Maquiladoras." 26 April 1999. (22 May 2002).
