Citing Sources


It is important to fully and accurately document the sources you use for your paper. You may use Art Bulletin or Chicago style.

Issues of Art Bulletin are available on the lower level in the bound periodical stacks.(see map).

There is an online version of the Chicago Manual of Style as well as print copies kept behind the Circulation Desk. Some examples of citing sources in Chicago style are located at Citation Tools: Chicago Style Guide


You can also use RefWorks which formats citations in the Chicago style and Art Bulletin (among many others).First time users need to set up an account.
