Chicago Footnote Referencing - Theology students: Citing yourself

This guide provides information on how to reference using the Chicago Footnote referencing style. PLEASE NOTE: counselling and education students should use APA referencing style

Citing yourself

In very rare cases you might need to quote a short section (no more than 2 sentences) of an assignment you have previously submitted.  If this is the case you should treat the quotation as you would any other source and correctly cite this in a footnote as below.

Footnote:
First name Family Name, "Title of Essay or Summary of Essay Question" (UNIT CODE Essay, Morling College, Year of assignment).

Bibliography:

Family Name, First name. "Title of Essay or Summary of Essay Question." UNIT CODE Essay, Morling College, Year of assignment.

Note:  if you have a required number of texts for a Bibliography, your own work does not contribute to this requirement.
