Informal Writing #5: Bibliographic Anatomy Practice
For each of the following citation
"types" listed below find an example in Jacobs. Having found an
appropriate sample citation, write down as it appears in Jacobs, then
go over it and produce a "diagram," as we discussed in class. To
review, a diagram of the formatting for a particular type of source [a
book, e.g.] creates generic descriptions of each element of a main
entry footnote for that source type, thereby showing how you would
reproduce that "type" of citation in another circumstance. Thus a
book entry always starts out with the author or editor's name.
Say the name was John Smith. Well then you diagram would say
this: Author First Name Author Last Name. Remember to include
punctuation and formatting. Thus for a book title, you would
diagram this: Title in Italics.
In addition, diagram the bibliographic entry necessary for your sample.
