Both the LR num­ber and the Mar­quette shelf­mark will for­ev­er remain invi­o­lable, so cit­ing either is safe. The LR num­ber is short­er, how­ev­er, and may also be used as part of a short­cut for­ward­ing URL in the form https://anduin.marquette.edu/LR01234.
The LR num­ber will for­ev­er remain invi­o­lable, and is there­fore the rec­om­mend­ed cita­tion method. By con­trast, it is pos­si­ble that the page num­ber with­in the draft will change as schol­ar­ship pro­gress­es, and there­fore any draft-page cita­tions may per­force also change over time. Note too that if you do cite this as a draft and page num­ber, the p” is required in order to avoid ambi­gu­i­ty with draft-pas­sage cita­tions, which oth­er­wise look identical.

Color hues in Anduin are provided as hints to sources and types of data. This is a key to the colors used — but distinguishing among them is not necessary for effective use of the system.
