Bluebooking Tips and Resources


Rule 18.2.2(c) discusses date and time designations for Internet citations. A "last visited" parenthetical is only used as a last resort when there is no other information about the date in the source. Examples of items to cite prior to using a "last visited" date are below. If any of these dates exist, use that date and do not include a "last visited" parenthetical.
