Subject: Re: 10.0667 citing e-resources?
Quite a lot has been written about citing e-sources and there is a
website that includes materials for MLA evolving style. Also,
textbook publishers are leaping on this one. (I am *not* related
to any publishers, so the following are not plugs.) Norton has
published Martin Irvine's _Web Works_ which is focused primarily,
as the title indicates, on using the Web and includes some
guidance about citation and bibliography formats. St. Martin's
has a more broadly presented text, Harnack and Kleppinger's
_Online!: A Reference Guide to Using Internet Sources_; this
has more detailed coverage of citation/bibliography styles
and help with various net usages. There was a very helpful
article on the subject in _Internet World_ (Sept. 1996)
There are various discussions of the problems in specific disciplines
on bulletin boards devoted to those disciplines; the MLA website
(this may be out of date by now) is
I believe that is not the only one, but its the url I have handy.
Hope this helps.
