Milestone ePortfolio Citation

This guide is intended to help students with citation for their Milestone ePortfolio projects.

Reference Categories

We recommend dividing your reference page into categories for your ePortfolio, to make it easier to organize and easier for the viewer to read. Remember that everything you directly discuss or include in your ePortfolio should be cited, no matter what it is!

Categories to Include

Portfolio Text: Anything mentioned in body text (books or articles you read in or out of class, lectures, etc.).

Artifacts: All your digital artifacts (photos and videos, your essays or projects, etc.).

Other Elements: Any digital elements you used when making your portfolio that aren't artifacts (background images, music, etc.).

Acknowledgments: People who helped shape the portfolio but aren’t mentioned in the portfolio text (tutors, peers, librarians, etc.).
