Relative to an earlier dialog on algae-l (or was it the PSA list) on
citing electronic sources, I attach the following, though it refers to
the humanities, and I agree with a comment on our list that one should
probably not regard e-mail messages as citable. (Some people are
certainly ex-citable on line.)

    The following suggestions for citations of Internet sources in
    history and the historically based humanities are derived from the
    essential principles of academic citation in Kate L. Turabian,
    *A Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Theses, and Dissertations,
    *5th ed. (Chicago, University of Chicago Press, 1987).  I have also
    draw upon suggestions from some of the works listed below.  The
    guide has been improved by the the students of my Historical
    Methods classes at East Tennessee State University and my fellow
    H-AFRICA editors whom I thank for their assistance.
    Since the Internet is an evolving institution, this guide is not
    intended to be definitive.  Corrections, additions, comments,
    suggestions, and criticisms are therefore welcome.  Please address
    them to the author at:

    When the need for revisions and updates become apparent, new versions
    of the guide will be issued.
                           Bibliographic Citations
    Basic citation components and punctuation
    Author's Last Name, First Name.  [author's internet address, if
        available].  "Title of Work" or "title line of message." In
        "Title of Complete Work" or title of list/site as appropriate.
        [internet address].  Date, if available.
    The samples below indicate how citations of particular electronic
    sources might be made.
