STYLE SHEET FOR PAPERS
Your text should be double-spaced (but footnotes should be single-spaced), and leave
margins of about 1" on top, bottom, and both sides of the page.
Include a title page with your name, the course number and name, and the title and date
of the paper. Staple or bind the pages firmly together, and be sure to proofread your paper before
handing it in.
As a general rule, the titles of works of art, like the titles of books, are italicized:
Conversion of St. Paul
. However, the names of buildings
and a few other types of object are left in roman letters: Sistine Chapel, Lincoln Cathedral,
Lindisfarne Gospels, Book of Kells. When in doubt, look to see how your textbook deals with
the work you are referring to, or with similar works. If your paper includes illustrations, they
should be properly identified in captions or in a separate list of illustrations. Identify the work
specify the source from which your illustration is taken (in the same way that you would
specify the source of a quotation in a footnote [see below]). For example:
, 1501-3. After Hugh Honour and John Fleming,
The Visual Arts:
, 4th ed. (Englewood Cliffs: Prentice-Hall, 1995), p. 448, fig. 11,25.

Use footnotes to identify the sources you have drawn on in preparing your paper. This
means not only the sources of quotations but also the sources of all opinions or interpretations
