CITING DOCUMENTS

      Each document includes a citation at the top, consistent with forms recommended by the standard brief guide for citing historical material, A Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Theses, and Dissertations by Kate Turabian (sixth edition),
     Based on sections 8.142 and 11.57, a document from this site should be cited as follows:

Manypenny to McLelland, 31 October 1854, in United States, Office of Indian Affairs, Letters Received by the Office of Indian Affairs, 1824-1880, National Archives Microcopy 234, Roll 608 (excerpt), NADP Document D1 [database online]; available from Native American Documents Project, http://www.csusm.edu/nadp/d1.htm; accessed 30 March 2000.

     Note that the file name, d1.htm, is simply the document number with ".htm" attached.
     The bibliographical reference for the same document would be:

Manypenny to McLelland, 31 October 1854. In United States. Office of Indian Affairs. Letters Received by the Office of Indian Affairs, 1824-1880. National Archives Microcopy 234, Roll 608 (excerpt). NADP Document D1. Database online. Available from Native American Documents Project, http://www.csusm.edu/nadp/d1.htm.

     If these forms seem overly cumbersome, try negotiating a simpler method with the professor involved.
