How should I transcribe website printouts? Do I need to include all of the advertisement texts. I have been working on this PDF and would like to know if there is an official way it should be done? I have been trying to add that info in but find myself wondering if we should actually skip it. An example of what I wonder about is page 46.
Thanks for your question. I would suggest describing what the page is in brackets
[printout from website Bartleby.com]
Then think about what it the most important part of the page for researchers. I suggest that you just transcribe the main text of the page. Don't worry about tabs, ads, urls, etc.
I hope that helps!
