Fact-Checking

Q. Is there some sort of resource available with definitive information about names and titles of various media programs? For example, is Oprah Winfrey’s talk show really The Oprah Winfrey Show or just Oprah? Do Matt Lauer and Meredith Vieira appear on The Today Show or Today? Often there is conflicting information. An authoritative resource would be extremely helpful for the copyediting process.

Q. How would the University of Chicago Press render the names of universities with multiple campuses?

Q. Hello! I need to refer to a school that changed from a college to a university. If it was still Loyola College when that person graduated, is it correct to say “graduated from Loyola College in 1999,” or is it best to use its current name: “from Loyola University in 1999”? Thanks!
