Lit Cited Pointers, Examples


I have completed the “Table” layout (that I had promised to do last week, by Friday – sorry for the delay).

I initially thought that comparing the FS Library Guide to our own Author’s Guide would show us what we are missing that they have.

What I learned is that the FS Library basically copied our Author’s Guide verbatim.

So, I learned less than I expected to learn.

However, I took the FS Library citation document example citations and put them into “column B” of the attached spreadsheet, with the relevant “pointers” from the PNW Author’s Guide in the corresponding row in Column A.

Since this is in table form it should be easy to add other types of media (we need to do an example dataset, I think).

I have another document that shows all the data types in Zotero (attached word document) that I might add to this spreadsheet at some point.

I also thought this “table layout” might be something to try in the Author’s Guide, instead of the current layout.

I happen to prefer the layout because it puts the “pointers” right next to the “example,” but that’s just me.
