Citation Guide: Chicago/Turabian Style

Find it in the Library


The Chicago Manual of Style is used by writers in the humanities (see also: MLA Style), predominantly in the field of history. You may sometimes hear the style referred to as the Chicago/Turabian style. Katie L. Turabian's A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations provides style recommendations nearly identical to The Chicago Manual of Style, except tailored for student writers.
