Brief summary: A word count is required on the title page of your process paper — this applies to ALL projects. Exhibits and Websites have to give image credits. These do not count towards your word count unless it’s a caption. On Websites, your citation must exist within the site, and also in your annotated bibliography. Multimedia in websites (including background music) is limited to 4 minutes.
