Mini-Manual of Style

On this page, you will find a link to the full-text of the mini-manuals of style created by Jim Lloyd, director of the CCU library. Currently, there is only a link to the CCU graduate school edition of the manual.  Soon there also be a link to an undergraduate version of the manual that will cover the MLA style guide.  Each manual is formatted in the style of a typical research paper, so you can use the manual itself as an illustrative guide for formatting your own paper.  The graduate school edition has been updated in 2007 in order to account for changes in the Chicago and APA style guides.  If you have a copy of an older edition of the min-manual, you should discard it and download the updated version.
