Electronic Sources

The format for documenting electronic sources of information is still being developed.

CD-ROMs and Other Portable Databases

Provide the author, data, and title information as you would for a printsource. Identify the medium (such as CD-ROM, electronic tape, cartridge tape) in brackets after the title. At the end of the entry, include the locationand name of the product.

Online Sources

Although the CBE Manual format for online sources does notinclude the full Internet address, adding such an address is both useful and consistent with theavailability elements of other CBE formats. Include the Uniform Resource Locator (URL) address;give the date accessed in parentheses. Enclose the full URL path in angle brackets (< >) withno underlining or punctuation. (Do not end a URL with any punctuation mark, and begin it on anew line rather than breaking it between lines.)
