Subject Research Guide Citation Options

These guidelines are intended to be the ideal layout and coding for citations and other common listings in subject research guides. These do not and cannot address all desired permutations. The goal is to describe and limit the number of permutations, while still being adaptable, to allow consistency across pages, ease and speed of code and maintenance, and to prepare for a 'machine parsable' record which would be used by a database or content management system. Not all guides have this layout yet. It may take some time to achieve this constistency.
