There are different types of sources to be found on the computer. Please be sure you know which type of source you are dealing
with before trying to figure out how to cite it.
NOTE: This system does not offer format style changes--underlining
or indents. So words that should be underlined have a _before and another after_ the terms that should appear in underline,
and remember that there should be a hanging indent at the beginning of the second and subsequent lines of each source.
