The Huntington Library asks that researchers identify and cite specific item information when quoting from materials held by the Library. Generally, citations should be structured as follows:

For single-item materials:
     [Identification of item], The Huntington Library, San Marino, California.

For items from collections:
     [Identification of item], [Collection title], The Huntington Library, San Marino, California.

The identification of an item will vary across collections and formats, but should typically include a call number (if assigned) or box/volume/folder number(s), and item title/description with date(s).

Please see our Credits and Citations Guide for detailed guidance.
