MLA (Modern Language Association) Style Manual guidelines are recommended when documenting a work from the Historic Pittsburgh collections.  Relevant information should include the author’s name, title, and publication information of the original work; the title of the project and electronic publication information; the date of access and the electronic address (or URL).
 
Example:
Dahlinger, Charles William.  Pittsburgh: A Sketch of Its Early Social Life.  New York: G. P. Putnam’s Sons, 1916.  Historic Pittsburgh. Digital Research Library, University of Pittsburgh.  October 18, 1999 (http://digital.library.pitt.edu/cgi-bin/t/text/text-idx?idno=00adc9703m;view=toc;c=pitttext).
