This guide will help you locate sources for your HIST 309 research project.

Chicago Style Citations

It's important to give credit and cite the sources you used to prepare your paper. Historians and history researchers most often use Chicago/Turabian Style to cite their sources. 

The Purdue OWL is a helpful free resource to help you create your citations.

Here's a general model for several Chicago-style citations: 

Kerouac, Jack. The Dharma Bums. New York: Viking Press, 1958.

Journal Article

MacDonald, Susan Peck. “The Erasure of Language.” College Composition and Communication 58, no. 4 (2007): 585-625.

Remember, you can also use SLLC databases to help you generate your citations!
