The resources listed below can be particularly helpful. The History Department generally follows guidelines from the Chicago Manual of Style. Ask your professor if he or she prefers a particular citation style, and consult the library's guide to citing sources for additional resources.
If you need more help, don't hesitate to ask a librarian.
RefWorks is a research management tool you can use to create bibliographies, format footnotes, and organize information that you import from the library's databases and other online sources. Footnotes and bibliographies created with RefWorks are only as good as the information you import. You will still need to edit some references. For help with that, refer to the library's guide to citing sources.
