Welcome to the library, Ms. Parsekhian’s HZT4U class! You’re here today for a review of how to cite sources (including your textbook) in bibliographic format using the Chicago school of citation for your Finding (a) Meaning to Life Assignment.

We have provided a handy PDF to refresh your memory of what a Bibliography looks like in Chicago style format. Remember: you aren’t expected to memorize this but be able to locate examples that will serve as a guide to formatting your own sources.

If you choose to use a photograph or piece of art, song lyrics or quotes by someone other than yourself, you’ll need to give them credit.

Purdue University’s Online Writing Lab (OWL Purdue) is our go-to for citation needs. Within this website, you may need to look at Book, Web Sources & Miscellaneous Sources to see proper formatting of your textbook, websites and images.

Using the Virtual Library, we recommend Britannica ImageQuest (the user ID is trillium and the password is trillium) which also has a built-in citation tool-(remember for this assignment you are using Chicago) and Creative Commons for images that are in the public domain and therefore free to use as they are covered by Creative Common Licences. They still require referencing, however.

Google is often our quickest and easiest option but you cannot cite Google as a source for a visual found in Google Images. You will need to become familiar with the Tools feature within Images which leads you to Usage Rights and images that have Creative Commons Licences. Your goal is to find the source/creator of the visual and as much detail as possible about the image. Pexels, Unsplash, Pixabay and Wikimedia Commons options for public domain images that have Creative Common Licences.

For famous quotes, you may simply use Google but a website like Goodreads will generate a list of famous quotes for you, often providing linked website (click on the picture to) for further reading as well as citation purposes.

Finally, if you find the perfect quote, try to locate the most academic source possible. However, if this is problematic, ensure that you still cite the web source appropriately.

Curated Resources for Classes in the Library Today

Welcome to the Library!

Period 1 – HZT 4U

Mr. Philippou’s class is coming in to refresh their memories of the basics of using Chicago style of Citation.

You’re now all experts (right?) in terms of creating a Bibliography. Congratulations. That’s no small feat.

The next step is to master the Footnote.

While a Bibliography provides your reader with a list of every resource you utilized, a Footnote shows from where every piece of research originated. 

These footnotes should correspond with what you find in the Bibliography.

Below you’ll find the Laurier Guide for Chicago Citation.

Remember to look to OWL @ Purdue for other questions that arise about citation. It’s where Ms. Kelso or Ms. Vilicic go when we’re looking for information about citation.

Look at this slide show for basics on how/where/when to use the Footnotes.

Also, here is an example essay file called From the dawn of time where you see how footnotes work.

In terms of research, the following databases as well as the Virtual Library are a good start.

Periods 2 & 4 – CHC2D

Mr. Philippou’s Grade 10 History classes will be learning the basics of using Chicago style of Citation. It is crucial to properly reference information that is not your own in order to give credit where it’s due and also to avoid PLAGIARISM. Providing your teacher with a URL for a website used unfortunately will not cut it anymore.

Using the following information will put you on the right track to creating bibliographies and footnotes to be proud of!

Period 3 – HZT4U

Today Mr. Philippou’s Grade 12 Philosophy class will be introduced to 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.
