Q. I have scanned a textbook with the information I need for a paper, but I forgot to scan the page numbers. I looked up the book online and found the table of contents, so I can document the page numbers for the entire chapters, but I only scanned selective pages. How can I cite in the footnotes without a page number?
A. There’s no way to do this right without page numbers; your citations will lack important information. If your goal is important to you (getting an A? getting published?), you’re going to have to locate the original source again.
