TitleAsian-Language Citation Guides
Faculty/College/UnitUBC Library
Duration1 Year
Project Summary

This project will address the citation formatting needs of undergraduate and graduate students conducting research using Asian-language resources. This will entail creating citation guides outlining standardized citation styles for Asian-language sources for use in both English and Asian-language research papers, as well as within UBC theses and dissertations. Graduate students supervised by Asian Library librarians will research the specific citation requirements for Chinese, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, Persian and Punjabi resources, and will develop online guides that will be available for use by all UBC students with reading proficiency in these languages and who would like to include Asian-language research within their scholarship.
