Online Resources

  • Purdue Owl Chicago Style Guide
    This section contains information on the Chicago Manual of Style method of document formatting and citation. These resources follow the 16th edition of the Chicago Manual of Style, which was issued in September 2010.
  • The Chicago Manual of Style Online
    The Chicago Manual of Style presents two basic documentation systems: (1) notes and bibliography and (2) author-date. Choosing between the two often depends on subject matter and the nature of sources cited, as each system is favored by different groups of scholars.
  • Turabian Quick Guide
    Kate L. Turabian’s Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations presents two basic documentation systems, notes-bibliography style (or simply bibliography style) and parenthetical citations–reference list style (or reference list style). These styles are essentially the same as those presented in The Chicago Manual of Style, 15th edition, with slight modifications for the needs of student writers.
  • Writer's Handbook
    The Chicago or Turabian style places bibliographic citations at the bottom of a page or at the end of a paper.

    Although the 14th edition of The Chicago Manual of style (1993) and the 5th edition of Turabian's Manual for Writers (1987) also offer guidelines for parenthetical documentation and reference lists, the Chicago and Turabian styles are most commonly thought of as note systems.
