AAA Style is now Chicago Style!
The American Anthropological Association replaced their style guide with Chicago Author-Date in 2015. If you still need the outdated AAA style guide, download it here:
AAA Style Guide
This is the citations and references style guide for the American Anthropological Association, outdated as of 2015, but still used in some courses.
Citation Management Tools
Citation management tools help you manage your research, collect and cite sources, and create bibliographies in a variety of citation styles. Each one has its strengths and weaknesses, but any are easier than doing it by hand! The Library offers workshops on Endnote, Zotero, and Refworks! Or contact your librarian for individual help.
- Zotero: A free plug-in that works with the Firefox browser, or with other browsers via a standalone version: keeps copies of what you find on the web, permits tagging, notation, full text searching of your library of resources, works with Word and/or OpenOffice. The library has created this handy guide to using Zotero -- including unlimited storage while a UCB student, staff or faculty -- by syncing your files to Box!
- RefWorks - free for UC Berkeley users, and free post-graduation as long as Berkeley subscribes. It allows you to create your own database by importing references and using them for footnotes and bibliographies. Use the RefWorks New User Form to sign up.
- EndNote: may be purchased from UC Berkeley's Software Central for about $80.
It's always good to double check the formatting -- sometimes the software doesn't get it quite right.
