When the Internet became popular in the late 1990s a number of new information sources prevailed. While the Word Wide Web was in its infancy many Internet communities continued to proliferate. Today research is primarily done either through the Web or possible through email. That said most of these sources are still available, and it’s important to know how to reference information found through them.
