Enchiridion All undergraduate students should have three things on their desks: A good collegiate dictionary, a very thick Roget’s Thesaurus , and a well-regarded style manual. Two highly recommended style manuals are Diana Hacker’s A Writer’s Reference and Kate Turabian’s A Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Theses and Dissertations . Some students, however, need prodding when it comes to the technical aspects of writing, thus, the birth of this abbreviated version, the “Enchiridion.” Enchiridion comes from the Greek word, encheiridion , that is, en for “in” + cheir for “hand,” meaning “in hand,” or manual. Please make sure that this “Enchiridion” is “in hand” when you are writing for this class. Yes, grammar, style and mechanics do matter. There are five sections to the “Enchiridion”: Chicago citation method, seven common footnote styles, seven common bibliographic entry styles, six common syntactical errors and nine common mechanical errors. There is a great deal more to be said about each of these subjects. In this manual, however, the information provided pertains to common citations and common errors in typical undergraduate work. If you have other more complicated cases or questions about any of these points, consult the manuals cited. Chicago Citation Method The citation method used in history and the humanities is called the Chicago Style. The Chicago Manual of Style , published by the University of Chicago Press, is in its 14 th edition. Both Hacker and Turabian use The Chicago Manual of Style as the basis for their own manuals. The information below is from the 14 th edition of “The Chicago.” Citation in the Text The footnote number, which is always Arabic numeral, is superscripted after the period or the final quotation marks in a footnote.

Double space separate entries. 3 Peter Bourchard, The Gallant Rush: Robert Gould Shaw and His Brave Black Regiment (New York: St. Martin’s Press, 1965, 85. 4 Robert Service, A History of Twentieth-Century Russia (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1998), 314-15.

Short Form of the Note For subsequent references to a source you have already cited, you may simply give the author’s last name, followed by a comma and the page or pages cited. 5 Bourchard, 26. When citing the same author, work and page number in the very next note, use “Ibid.” If the page number is different, follow “Ibid.” with a comma and the page number, as in “Ibid., 49.” (Ibid. is Latin for “in the same place.”) If you cite more than one work by the same author, you must use a full citation the first time you cite the other work. After that you can use a short form of the
