How can I use BibTeX to cite a web page?

I want to cite this book: http://www.sce.carleton.ca/faculty/chinneck/po.html

Here's the citation I was given as an example:

  author =   {Donald E. Knuth},
  title =    {The {\TeX} Book},
  publisher =    {Addison-Wesley},
  year =     {1984},
  edition =      {15th}

There is no publisher, no year, no edition etc.

Should I do it like this ( How can I use BibTeX to cite a web page? ) ?

    Surely you want to mention the URI. An access date is useful too, in case the "book" is updated.

  • The question linked should cover what you need. The BibTeX @misc field is most commonly used. May 23, 2011 at 7:59
  • This does look like a duplicate: you don't really have an 'online book' as distinct from a webpage.

Depends on the citation style you are asked to use. In my institution (for dissertations) we have to include the uri and the access date.
