Ahh, I think I am replying to this message. Thanks for the welcome. I see that there is quite a bit more to learn than I originally was aware of. If this is the right way to reply to you, let me know; otherwise I will assume that I got it wrong. Lon of Oakdale (talk) 17:22, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

Non-website citations[edit]

Hi Lon, You asked this question over here; you got a couple of replies (in case you didn't check that page):

The tutorial does a reasonable job explaining how to cite sources that are accessable by URL. It wasn't that clear how to cite sources from a book. How do you cite sources from non-standard sources, such as college transcripts? Lon of Oakdale (talk) 16:48, 21 April 2008 (UTC)
See WP:CITE for details. -- Quiddity (talk) 20:27, 19 May 2008 (UTC)
College transcripts are rarely verifiable by people who are not the student in question, so not that great a source to begin with, as well. Better to stick with things that are generally accessible by readers. -- phoebe / (talk to me) 04:05, 28 July 2008 (UTC)
