Hi Ian

I don't have any info from the OU about citing e-resources but I did
get this from a link that went via Bournemouth University, of all
places! It appears there's no standard and agreed method of citing
these resources but the few sites I got links for have all said pretty
much the same thing:

"The recommended method for citing Internet sources is to make use of
the document's URL (Internet address).

In the citation, the URL should be split at the end of a line only after
the forward slashes in the address. No further punctuation, such as
hyphens, should be added, nor should the case of any characters in the
address be altered."

Thank's all.

I am reasonably clear on the bibliography referencing, but am still
unsure how to cite in the main text a quotation.

Any ideas?

Can you not do the same as you would for a non-electronic text? Just use
the quotation and footnote it to the URL?
