Citing Sources for Your History Project

Student, double check your syllabus to determine the style of citation that is required for your course. If you have any doubt about how you are supposed to cite sources, ask your professor. The following manuals contain the standards for citation in the three different styles that may be used in history projects. The most commonly required style of citation in our history classes is Chicago Style.

The following citation generators can help you format your references. Please check your references against the above manuals for accuracy, and visit the Writing Center at Southworth Library Learning Commons for more help with citations.
