Historian's generally use the Chicago style format for footnotes/endnotes and bibliography. This one page guide provides examples for the most common type of sources. See the Citations and Writing page for more guides and information. A print copy of the Chicago Manual of Style is available in the Reference section of Suzzallo Library -- just ask for it at the Research Help Desk on the 1st floor.
Those with King County Library Cards (all UW students are eligible for a KCLS card) can use the online version of the Chicago Manual.
