The University Archives expects researchers to be responsible when citing materials found in the collections.  All citations must be specific enough to lead subsequent researchers directly to the items cited.  The Archives puts forth the following examples as models that it hopes researchers, writers, and publishers will adopt. 

Footnote Citations

Citing a letter in a processed collection where box and folder numbers are assigned to each container:

John Louis Deister to Rev. Andrew Morrissey, 2 July 1902, University of Notre Dame Early President’s Records (hereafter cited as UPEL) 94/11, University of Notre Dame Archives (hereafter cited as UNDA).

Joseph F. Dohan to Rev. Andrew Morrissey, 3 July 1902, UPEL 94/11, UNDA.

Citing a letter in a collection (unprocessed or processed) that has no assigned box or folder numbers:
