Welcome to the Library, Ms. Magon’s HSP3U Class!
Ms. Magson’s Grade 11 Introduction to Anthropology, Psychology, and Sociology class will be coming to the Virtual Library to research their Mental Illness Case File assignment and review citing using Chicago Style.
For this assignment, you’ll need quality resources from different areas.
To access media resources, use our Catalogue; found on the Virtual Library. The Catalogue provides you access to streaming video and other digital resources. You’ll need to log in with your TDSB information to access the Catalogue.
Other digital sources can be found in the following slideshow.
Another valuable source would be the Vanier Institute of the Family, which has an awful interface but excellent research on mental health and its impact upon families.
The Government of Canada website may be helpful.
Using the search box in Healthlink B.C.’s website , may help you find information about your topic as a starting point.
Quebec’s government webpage for mental health may also yield some initial results.
Their are websites and organizations specific to some illnesses such as Tourette’s Syndrome so that may be an option to look into as you are researching.
Resources for the HSP3U
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.
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.
You’ll find all manners of differing opinions on how to cite videos. To be honest, it can be daunting. If you’re citing a video that you found online, it’s probably best to go straight to the Chicago Manual of Style.
Section 14.280 of the Manual list the elements of an online video citation:
- If known, the name of the principle subject of the recording, such as a presenter, interviewee, journalist, or director..
- The title of the video clip, placed in “quotation marks.”
- The medium of the recording or name of the website on which the recording is located — YouTube video, MPEG file, New York Times video, etc. The manual is not clear on when to list the medium of the recording vs. the name of the website.
- The time length of the recording
- The date on which the recording was uploaded
- The URL at which the recording may be found
As always, we direct you to using OWLPurdue for more examples or to answer citation questions.
