Use of ibid.

1 Michael Twyman, Lithography 1800-1850 (London: Oxford University Press, 1970), 145-146.

2 Ibid.

Ibid., short for ibidem, means “in the same place.”  Use ibid. if you cite the same page of the same work in succession without a different reference intervening.  If you need to cite a different page of the same work, include the page number.  For example:  2Ibid., 50.

 

 

Quoting a source within a source

If you’re citing a piece of information or quote that one book has gotten from another, you repeat the full citation for the original source, then add “cited in,” and footnote the source from which you are actually working:

1 Sigmund Freud, Totem and Taboo (New York: Random House, 1918) 17, quoted in Warren Williams, A Student’s Guide to Psychology (Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1990) 89.

 

Citing information from a footnote

If you are citing a piece of information contained in a long discursive footnote such as you find in many academic books, just use a standard footnote format in your paper, mention the page number on which the information appears, and after the page number, write the number of the footnote from the book you are citing, e.g., “489, note 37.”

2 Warren Williams, A Student’s Guide to Psychology (Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1990) 489, note 37.
