Project Pointers
For a 6-8 page double-spaced word-processed essay, plan a minimum of one source per page. Keep in mind that if you use several artifacts (diary entries, photos, or memorabilia) you would need additional types of sources so that you don’t over-rely on one or two secondary sources. The final product of this oral history project is a research essay that interprets and contextualizes an aspect of your formal oral history interview. With Chicago Style Citations, you will choose either footnotes which appear at the bottom of each page OR endnotes which are listed on a separate page following the essay. The Bibliography is required, even if it repeats the information in footnotes/endnotes. Note that the bibliographic and footnote/endnote format is slightly different.
