If referencing illustrations or tables from a print publication, provide the type and number instead of the page reference. For example: fig.9 or table 4.4 or plate 7 or map 3.27.

If referencing a footnote instead of text, provide the footnote number. For example: 72n, 80n. 

If a page reference is not available in an e-book or other electronic format, list chapter number or section heading instead, and add the electronic format. Formats include iBooks, Kindle, NOOK, Google Play Books, Adobe Digital Editions EPUB, etc. For example: chap. 7. Kindle.

If referencing a quotation in a secondary source, go to the original source. If the original source is unavailable, cite both the original and secondary sources. For example: William Hall to Clergy and School Lands Committee, 1 January 1827, Letters received from the Master of the Native Institution, NRS 780 [4/345], State Records of New South Wales, quoted in Tracey Banivanua Mar, “Shadowing Imperial Networks: Indigenous Mobility and Australia's Pacific Past,” Australian Historical Studies 46, no. 3 (2015): 351, DOI:10.1080/1031461X.2015.1076012.
