How to Cite Archival Sources

The elements you should include when you cite archival sources (such as diaries, letters, memos, unpublished manuscripts, more) are: a description of the item, ideally including author and date; a call number or other identifying number for the item; and the name of the institution that holds it. Different style guides will of course require you to punctuate and capitalize these elements differently, and some style guides don't discuss archival sources at all. When in doubt, speak to your professor.
