Ms. Parsekhian’s Philosophy 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.

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.

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

Here are some links to primary sources that you might find useful:

Classical and Medieval Sources of Natural Law

Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy

Fordham University’s Modern History Sourcebook

Curated Resources for Classes in the Library Today

Welcome to the Library!

 

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.

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.
