Curated Resources for Classes in the Library Today
Welcome to the Library!
Period 1 – CHY4U1
Ms. Gaudette’s Grade 12 History class is working in the Library on their Essay for another period. This time we’ll focus more closely on Chicago Citation.
You will be using the 17th updated version of the Chicago Manual of Style.
Yes, there is now a 17th Edition. Which means the old PDF or printout you’ve used in the past is now obsolete. You are welcome to take it out of your binder and (safely and neatly) throw it into the Blue Bin. Shooting for 3 works, but I’d suggest an aggressive dunk.
The new file can be found right here at Chicago Citation at Laurier.
The basics are unchanged, but we feel that this new resource will provide you with a thorough overview of the expectations laid out by the 17th Edition of the Chicago Manual of Style.
Look at this slide show for basics on how/where/when to use the Footnotes.
Here is an example essay file called From the dawn of time where you see how footnotes work.
