Curated Resources for Classes in the Library Today

Welcome to the Library!

Period One- CHC2D7
Mr. Philippou’s Grade 10 Pre-IB History class is coming to work on their 1920s assignment.

The Library’s Catalogue also will allow you on-site and remote access to our Print, Electronic and Streaming Video Collection.


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.


This is how you would your supplementary course textbook would look like in the Bibliogrpahy.
