    Answer :
    With this example I would just do (Hawking, 2000) in the text and then
    Hawking, S. (2000) title of article/webpage. Available at: [url] Accessed on 7/12/2007.
    Detailed answer is in post #2.

    Website with author
    Take the information from the webpage itself or the associated homepage - use the title bar and the credits at the bottom of the page, your own date of viewing the page and insert the words [online] and Available from World Wide Web:
    FAMILY NAME, INITIAL(S). Year. Title [online]. [Date accessed]. Available from World Wide Web : <url of site>

    HAWKING, S. 2000. Professor Stephen Hawking's website [online]. [Accessed 9th May 2002]. Available from World Wide Web: <http://www.hawking.org.uk/home/hindex.html>

    Website with no author
    Take the information from the webpage itself or the associated homepage - use the title bar and the credits at the bottom of the page, your own date of viewing the page and insert the words [online] and Available from World Wide Web:
    Title of website.Year as appearing on site [online]. [Date accessed]. Available from World Wide Web : <url of site>

    Feminist Collections A Quarterly of Women's Studies Resources. 2002. [online]. [Accessed 9th May 2002]. Available from World Wide Web: <http://www.library.wisc.edu/libraries/WomensStudies/fcmain.htm>

    If the website has no author, then I would just write (Title of website, Year accessed) in the text.
