Citing your Sources

 

Style Manuals

 

The Citation Styles, Style Manuals, and Plagiarism Guide provides information on why you should cite your sources, plagiarism and how to avoid common mistakes, as well as a list of style manuals.


The Chicago Manual of Style. 16th ed.
Reference Desk Z253 .U69 2006,

A Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Theses, and Dissertations [Turabian]
Reference Desk LB369 .T8 1996

Turabian and the Chicago Manual of Style are often used by art historians in preparing their footnotes and bibliographies, but students should check with their professors to see which style manual is required for their course papers.

For suggested ways to cite Internet sources consistent with Turabian's style, see A Brief Citation Guide for Internet Sources in History and the Humanities

IMAGES

Cite the artist's name, title in italics, the medium and support, the date, and the institution or individual who owns the work, the city, and, if needed for clarification, the state.
