Mine are out of control! :) For example, in [1] all primary sources are 
online and there are 9 WP page references: all within 2004-2006 range. So 
it can be hard to distinguish what is what. In the actual in-line citations 
I distinguish by appending the first letter of the first 3 words. For 
example:
   (Wikipedia 2004n) ->
  Wikipedia (2004). Nupedia. Retrieved on December 22, 2005 from 
  < http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nupedia >.

In the dissertation, I might separate the bibliographies of primary and 
secondary sources...
