Citing Materials

How should the materials in the General Conference Archives and the Rebok Memorial Library be cited? Find our recommended Citation Style Guide here.

The purpose of citations is to facilitate the easy retrieval of the material referenced. But Adventist historiography manifests a tendency to idiosyncratic, elliptic, and inconsistent citation of archival records. The General Conference Archives seeks to foster more complete and consistent citation in Adventist scholarship, and therefore, following the example of some other archives, has created a citation guide. The specified style should be used in citing documents, photographs, and artifacts held in the General Conference Archives or the Rebok Memorial Library, but could also be followed in citing materials from other archives or libraries.
