- MUNFLA Bibliographic Citation Guidelines
As a part of any form of academic research, all writers must properly document their sources. This means acknowledging the source for each piece of information by using a bibliography and/or works cited list, and citations for ideas and paraphrased material, as well as for direct quotations. The Department of Folklore and the Archive follow Turabian bibliographic citation style.
- MUNFLA Archive Use Guidelines for Researchers
Caring for our collections is central to achieving our mission "to facilitate research on Newfoundland and Labrador culture" and "to archive research materials in order to make a permanent record for the future." It is not enough just to preserve knowledge; our task is to enable it to be used now and for generations to come. Every reader can help us to preserve our collections for present and future generations by supporting the measures we take to protect our collections, and by respecting our Reading Room Guidelines and General Handling Guidelines set out in this document.
