IBID--Radford University--McConnell Library
If two or more references to the same work follow one another without a reference to a different source between them, even if separated by several pages, use “ibid.” rather than the usual author and title subsequent notes system.
Here’s an example. Consider this your first citation:
1. Patricia Duane Beaver, Rural Community in the Appalachian South (Lexington, KY: University Press of Kentucky, 1986), 77.
If the next reference in your notes is also from Beaver’s Rural Community in the Appalachian South, and from the same page as your previous note, then your very next note would look like this:
This means that footnote #2 is from the same source and same page as footnote #1.
If the next note is also from Beaver’s Rural Community in the Appalachian South, but from a different page, then the next note would look like this:
3. Ibid., 65
