How to cite newspaper articles from AHN in Zotero

[these are general guidelines -- modify as needed]

  • Item type = Newspaper article (probably)
  • Title = Headline (if it makes sense). If it’s a [No headline] or just a date, you may consider [adding your own title in brackets]
  • Author = frequently won’t be one
  • Publication = Use standard title (not title as written)
  • Place = City, state abbr.
  • Edition = if there is one [Sunday edition, Evening edition, etc]
  • Date = change to Month Day, Year (March 26, 1778)
  • Section = if there is one
  • Pages = page number(s) the article is on (go to “full page” to double check)
  • Archive = America’s Historical Newspapers
  • PUT URL IN “Extra” [from “Bookmark”]


That footnote (using Chicago 16 - full note) would look something like this...

“[General Washington Talks to Quakers],” Massachusetts Spy, March 26, 1778, America’s Historical Newspapers.
