Chicago Citation Style
Chicago style is used in many social science disciplines, such as history and anthropology. If you are not sure which style to use, consult with your instructor.
There are two books that can guide you in using Chicago:
- The Chicago manual of style. (2010). 16th ed. Chicago: The University of Chicago Press. This is a comprehensive guide that answers questions of grammar and usage as well as citation style.
- Turabian, K. L. (2007). A manual for writers of research papers, theses, and dissertations: Chicago style for students and researchers. 8th ed. Chicago: The University of Chicago Press. This "abbreviated" guide to Chicago will still answer most of your questions.
- The OWL @ Purdue provides good examples.
- Prescott College Library handout on the author/date system.
- Prescott College Library handout on the endnote/footnote system.
