How would one cite a book, that is not really a book, but is the full text of a book - that has been digitised and made available online. I am revisiting and revising some of my earlier citations.
I am referring to content on the British History Online (BHO) website, specifically for: https://www.british-history.ac.uk/vch/oxon/vol17/175-208
They do offer this for citation (Chicago):
"Langford Parish: Langford," in A History of the County of Oxford: Volume 17, ed. Simon Townley (Woodbridge, Suffolk: Boydell & Brewer for the Institute of Historical Research, 2012), 175-208. British History Online, accessed February 17, 2020, http://www.british-history.ac.uk/vch/oxon/vol17/175-208.
I have read through section 12 of EE, Publications; but cannot seem to find a suitable format.
I twigged the citation BHO offers, and came up with this:
Simon Townley, editor, "Langford Parish: Langford," in A History of the County of Oxford: Volume 17 (Woodbridge, Suffolk: Boydell & Brewer for the Institute of Historical Research, 2012), 175-208; text only version, British History Online (http://www.british-history.ac.uk/vch/oxon/vol17/175-208 : accessed 2 January 2018).
There is a hard copy of this book: https://boydellandbrewer.com/a-history-of-the-county-of-oxford-hb-28184.html
British History Online explain their process as:
Double re-keying: British History Online publishes texts that have been digitised by double-rekeying. This transcription method involves two typists inputting text independently from page scans. The two transcriptions are then compared and any differences are manually resolved. This process ensures a very high level of accuracy as both typists are highly unlikely to make the same mistakes. This has resulted in a transcription accuracy level estimated at greater than 99.995%, which is significantly better than can currently be achieved through computerised techniques.
Thanks in advance
