E-mediate/Maximedia Guides


I find it easier to give sources a short name and then explain the reference here (easier to alphabetize). I'm also in favour of giving the ISBN rather than the place of publication (often many places these days) but this has the drawback that the UN often does not seek ISBN numbers for its works.
