Query:   Distinguished members of the list:

Documentation of sources from the Internet has been discussed on the
List in the past. Problems associated with an accurate system of
documentation include:

1. Sites change frequently even hourly
2. Sites depend on you as user providing a user ID, profile, etc.
3. Long documents do not include page numbers
4. Finding the author, title, homepage for a document is sometimes
difficult
5. Traditional referencing is not always helpful for Internet material
6. Should the complete path for a given source be specified in
student/research documentation?
7. How are institutional policies regarding referencing preparing to
meet emerging requirements for internet use?

Your solution or advice on current or anticipated procedures would be
appreciated. I will summarize for the list if there is sufficient
interest. Please give adequate identifying information so that I may
provide an adequate reference!
