Greetings, all! Today’s focus is on citations. We ignored this in the drafts. But now is the moment you want to focus on those nit-picky details. Citations will count up to 1/3 of a letter grade in the final proposal/biblio. So you want to get them right. Use my citation tipsheets (top menu) & Lipson, Cite Right.
Note: Sometimes you have a source that doesn’t quite fit with the models. In that case, follow its closest models, creating your own hybrid form for that type of source. As long as your citations are consistent, follow Chicago biblio style as closely as possible, with my Tipsheet exceptions (note what those are!), and include all the relevant info, you’ll be fine.
To work on this for class, everyone please do this: Pick one citation you’re having trouble with. CHECK my Tipsheet first to see if the problem is answered there. If not, post it here as a COMMENT. Once we have a few up (say 10 minutes or so), I’ll pick one that we’ll all work on together. You’ll post suggested edits.
And you’ll pose any questions you have about citations.
