Ellipsis means omission, and ellipsis points are three-period sequences used to indicate that something has been left out of a sentence or passage. Leave a space before and after each period. If a sentence ends (or is cut off) right before the ellipsis, you should also leave in the period that would have ended the sentence; this period will have a space after it but no space before it. You can leave in other punctuation that comes just before or after an ellipsis if it will make things clearer, but this is not required.

Always reread text after trimming it this way to make sure the cuts haven’t distorted the author’s meaning. Note that ellipsis points are not used at the beginning of a block quote—nor, usually, at the beginning of a quotation used in running text—even when you’ve dropped some words from the original beginning. If a block quote or a run-in quote closes with a complete sentence (even if it’s been shortened), you need not add ellipsis points at the end, either.
We favor lowercasing the e of email, and we prefer not to hyphenate this term. When listing email addresses in external publications, use the full email address (e.g., email@example.com), written in lowercase letters.
Note that emeritus is the singular, masculine form; for references to women, use emerita (singular) or emeritae (plural). Emeriti serves as the plural for a group that is composed of men only or of men and women together. These terms are not synonyms for retired. The titles represent a special status conferred on some faculty members at retirement upon recommendation by the dean of the school with approval by the campus administrator (provost or chancellor) and reported to the Trustees of Indiana University. Some retirees from administrative posts also receive this status (e.g., dean emeritus). All references follow the noun.
professor emerita of music, professors emeriti, faculty emeriti
This is the official name of the museum on the Bloomington campus; IU Art Museum is no longer acceptable. It should not be called the Fine Arts Museum. There is the Grunwald Gallery in the adjacent Henry Radford Hope School of Fine Arts.
