Try this site:
Bibliographic Formats for Citing Electronic Information

There's a book that goes with it, _Electronic styles: A Handbook for

probably has. The book is quite well known and accepted among librarians.

To Jim O'Donnell and others

The site below might be of interest in relation to plagiarism. I
reproduce(!) part of a mail message that was forward to me in September.
For citation advice - MLA handbook advice is available:

Gibaldi, Joseph "MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers, Theses and
Dissertations" 4th edition, New York, Modern Language Association of
America, 1995.
