How Do I Cite this Information?
Some historical documents can be complicated to cite such as personal letters, brochures, or undated phototgraphs. Luckily there are many websites dedicated to proper citation regardless of the format you are using. *May we suggest looking at:
- Zondervan Library Citation Style Guide
- The Writing Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison
- The Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL)- Purdue University
Can I obtain Photocopies and Scans?
Duplicates of materials will be made only if there will be no injury to the material, and if there is no violation of copyright restrictions or restrictions imposed by agreement with the donor. All patrons are expected to abide by copyright laws. All photocopies are made by archives staff so be sure to leave yourself enough time to receive your copies, or plan to take notes.
