Citing exhibition catalogs

The OneSearch library catalog and other databases may erroneously list an exhibition artist among the catalog's editors, but your citation should only include the people who actually edited the exhibition catalog.

When citing an excerpt from an exhibition catalog, remember to include the author of the excerpt and the pages where it appears. For exhibition catalog excerpts, the editors of the exhibition catalog should not be listed as authors, although they should be included in the citation, as editors of a book would be included when citing a book chapter.
