Style Guidelines

The Catalogue Style Guide located at catalogue.usc.edu contains editorial guidelines for grammar and punctuation as well as university-specific conventions, such as the proper names of schools and departments. It is intended to provide a set of consistent editorial standards specifically for Catalogue Office publications. It is not designed to be a guideline for technical or academic writing.

Guidelines are based on university style as well as the AP Stylebook and Briefing on Media Law and Merriam Webster online dictionary (M-W.com). Additions will be made as needed.
