Specialized Citations

Citing from an e-book reader, such as a Kindle, requires a somewhat different citation than other e-books.  Also, articles from a database like Opposing Viewpoints, which contains articles reprinted from various types of sources, requires a different citation format.  The links below are guides to these specialized types of citations.
