Keeping Track of Citations

It's important to keep track of your citations in order to create your bibliography as well as to keep a record of sources you still need to find. It's up to you how you want to manage your citations - whether a specific notebook, a file on your computer, or using a citation manger. 

Citation Style Guides

  • Chicago tends to be the citation style used in the Arts and Architecture, but always check with your professor about their preferences for citation style.
  • Have questions about citations? You can always stop in at the library but also check with your professor. 
  • If you use a citation management tool like Zotero, it's important to go over the bibliography it generates for you to ensure that you have cited all the resources correctly.

Citing from the Catalog

Look for the green pencil icon in the library catalog. Clicking on the "Cite This" tool will show you how to cite the source using APA, Chicago, Harvard, MLA, and Turabian citation styles. 

In addition, you can also use to export the citation into RefWorks, EndNote, or Endnote Web.
