from George G. Morgan
When you make a photocopy of a page from a pertinent book at a library or archive, make a note of the publication information for your source citation. Include:
- Author’s name(s)
- City and state (and country if foreign) of publication
- Name of publisher
- Year of publication
- Other appropriate information (volume number, edition, etc.)
- Repository where you located the material
- The date you accessed the material
When you return home, you can type this information in your word processor in a bibliographic citation format. Feed the photocopies through your printer so that the citation will be neatly printed on the back of the photocopies you made from that source.
