Using Safari with Cite It and Read and Respond Assignments 

Instructors Only

There are a couple of settings you may adjust in Safari to improve the functionality. These settings have been recommended by the developer.

If you have adjusted both of these settings and continue to experience issues, contact Zach Eden ( and/or Melissa Gomis (
