FYE: Ethical Use of Information (What is Art For? McBreen)


Practice Creating Citations - Think, Pair Share

Think about what you have learned about citations and their value in a scholarly community like Wheaton. Pair with a classmate, either remotely or from a safe distance. One of you will be looking at Chicago (note), the other can pick another style of their choice (commons styles include APA, MLA, and Turabian). Write up the answers to the questions below and any other discoveries you made.

  1. Using ZoteroBib, each of you should look up each of these items in your format:
  2. Using the "Copy to the Clipboard button" paste the citations into a shared Google Doc.
  3. Now, look at the two citation styles. In the Google Doc, list several similarities and several differences between the two styles you chose. Did one style emphasize a different piece of information that another (year of publication or author name)? Explain.
  4. Look at the various formats of information. Are all the citations within a style the same? Explain.
  5. What varies between different formats of information? Write why you think this may be important?
