Subject: How to Cite On-Line Research

There is an increasing need for a standard way of citing on-line
research. On-line sites may change addresses, move to new locations,
be revised, and/or disappear. The January 12, 1996, issue of *The
Chronicle of Higher Education* has a helpful discussion which should
be on the *Chronicle* web site <>; by January
16, 1996.

Three good citation guides that are increasingly being followed are:

 "A Brief Citation Guide for Internet Sources in History and the
 Humanities," by Melvin E. Page.

 "Bibliographic Formats for Citing Electronic Information." by Xia
 Li and Nancy B. Crane.

 MLA-Style Citations of Electronic Sources, by Janice R. Walker.
