Guidelines for Wiki Entries (characters, places, names etc.)

  • Follow the formatting of the sample article for the cow Audhumla.
  • You have to provide your references; web references alone are NOT acceptable.
  • When using sources and references, rephrase in your own words. Exact quotes have to be indicated by quotation marks.
  • You may not simply cut and paste from an existing webpage; if doing so, you commit plagiarism. 
  • Your references have to follow MLA style, but instead of underlining, use italics.
  • All information has to come from a reliable source. 
  • Make use of the primary sources (Prose EddaSaga of the Völsungs). You should provide at least one representative and appropriate quote from a primary source.
  • Add appropriate pictures if available. You have to provide the source of the picture.
  • Make sure your entries are accurate. You have to verify your information.


  • All wiki entries will be evaluated according to these guidelines by the instructor and the students.
