How do I cite archival material?

Answer

For archival material, it is important to note the following information when citing it: 

  • Archival repository 

  • Fonds/collection title 

  • Author/creator of the item 

  • Format of the item 

  • Box and file that the item is located in 

  • Date of creation for the item 

For materials held at the University of Calgary Archives and Special Collections, use the following format for archival repositories: 

  • [Archival Repository], Archives and Special Collections, University of Calgary. 

  • e.g. Glenbow Library and Archives, Archives and Special Collections, University of Calgary. 

UCalgary Archives & Special Collections has a guide to citation that you can access here which contains links to guides on specific citation styles.
