An American Studies writing assignment might require footnoting or endnoting, so students should always consult with their instructors about proper forms of documentation for any project.

In general, however, footnotes and/or endnotes should include the name of the author or authors (first name first), the full title (in italics, if it is a book, magazine, newspaper, journal, or film), the place of publication, the publisher, the date, and the relevant page numbers.

The first time you cite a source, give all the relevant information.
