Citing Sources

Every historian knows the importance of citing all your evidence. Footnoting or endnoting can be a harrying process, nonetheless. Here are two things I use to help:

1) The Chicago Manual of Style Online has a listing of how to cite different kinds of sources. It’s not quite as exhaustive as the print version, but very handy and up to date.

2) The software EndNote is great for keeping and cataloging your sources. You can purchase the software or use the free online version. The program even allows you to pull citations right from the Library of Congress website so you don’t have to type in all the info.
