While it is a little redundant, it might be better to stick with the Online,
Internet, etc. stuff. "Online" identifies the kind of source (i.e., not
traditional print) and "Internet" specifies which of many online sources (as
opposed to Dialog, etc.) you have gotten the information from. The http://etc. is
the specific file, and while the http:// format will not appear anywhere but the
Internet, it might be better to keep the other pieces of information for the sake
of stylistic consistency.
