Source Tutorial

Book Example

This page created 14 Feb 2005

Applies to Versions 8 & 9

This example illustrates how a book might be entered as a source. See the introduction for notes that apply to all three of these examples.

Here is the example provided by Ms. Mills' Evidence! for Book (Authored):

Primary Citation
(Endnotes or Footnotes)
Subsequent Citation
(Endnotes or Footnotes)

Bibliographic Entry
  1. Daniel F. Littlefield Jr., Africans and Creeks from the Colonial Period to the Civil War (Westport, Connecticut: Greenwood Press, 1979), 79–80  1. Littlefield, Africans and Creeks, 79–80 Littlefield, Daniel F., Jr. Africans and Creeks from the Colonial Period to the Civil War. Westport, Connecticut: Greenwood Press, 1979

Wholly Genes has interpreted that example to create the following TMG templates for it's source type Book (Authored):

Full Footnote Short Footnote Bibliography
[AUTHOR], [ITAL:][TITLE][:ITAL] ([PUBLISHER ADDRESS]: [PUBLISHER], [PUBLISH DATE])<, [CD]><. Hereinafter cited as [ITAL:][SHORT TITLE][:ITAL]>. [AUTHOR], [ITAL:][SHORT TITLE][:ITAL]<, CD]>. [AUTHOR]. [ITAL:][TITLE][:ITAL]. [PUBLISHER ADDRESS]: [PUBLISHER]<, [PUBLISH DATE]>.

In an attempt to match the example in Evidence! I then entered the following data in a TMG source definition, using TMG's Book (Authored) source type:

When I created a report in TMG citing this source, the program used the Output Templates in the Source Type and the text I had entered in the various Source Elements to create the following notes:

Full Footnote Short Footnote Bibliography
Daniel F. Littlefield, Africans and Creeks from the Colonial Period to the Civil War (Westport, Connecticut: Greenwood Press, 1979), 79-80. Hereinafter cited as Africans and Creeks. Littlefield, Africans and Creeks, 79-80. Littlefield, Daniel F.. Africans and Creeks from the Colonial Period to the Civil War. Westport, Connecticut: Greenwood Press, 1979.

To make it easier to compare, I'm repeating Ms. Mills' examples here:

  1. Daniel F. Littlefield Jr., Africans and Creeks from the Colonial Period to the Civil War (Westport, Connecticut: Greenwood Press, 1979), 79–80  1. Littlefield, Africans and Creeks, 79–80 Littlefield, Daniel F., Jr. Africans and Creeks from the Colonial Period to the Civil War. Westport, Connecticut: Greenwood Press, 1979
