Hi Guys,

I was wondering if I was suppose when I use a footnote to cite a book, if I am suppose to write the page number as well ??

Thanks a lot :clap::clap::clap:

YES. You don't have to write out the entire citation in the footnote (like author, title, publication, etc). Just put the author's last name and the page number(s) you found the information on.

^Actually, I think that would depend more on what kind of bibliography/citation style you're doing - MLA, APA, Chicago, etc?

I know for Chicago at least your first footnote should be the full citation, and then if you use the same source after that then it becomes the shortened version..

But yes, I would think that you'd need to write the page number as well. When you're figuring out the footnotes you should look up a guide to whichever referencing system you're using, so that you can be sure you're doing it right and citing everything properly. :)
