How do you find the publishing date/author for your website articles, so I can site the source?

How do you find the publishing date/author for your website articles, so I can site the source?

We produce a number of different types of resources with authors and publication dates in different places.

Our Everyday Mysteries (https://www.loc.gov/everyday-mysteries/) have a publication date and a corporate author, the Science Reference Section, Library of Congress, listed at the bottom of the text of the article, just above the Further Reading items.

Our blog posts (https://blogs.loc.gov/inside_adams/) have a publication date listed just under the title of the post. The staff member whose name appears next to that date is generally the author of the post, unless a note in italics naming a guest or another staff member as the author proceeds the text of the post.

Our reference guides (https://guides.loc.gov/?b=p) have an author and a creation date listed in a box in the column to the left of the text.
