Chicago Manual of Style (Call No. Z 253 .C57 2010 ) is available at the dictionary stand on each floor of the library. This guide is on how to cite sources, mainly books, articles and online resources. It gives a brief introduction to the basic forms of two systems (for more details, click on the tab What is Chicago Style):
(1) author-date references (parenthetical text citation) and reference lists
(2) notes (footnotes/endnotes) and bibliography
What is a Format or Style?
A format or style manual is a set of rules to be applied to a research paper or professional article in a discipline.
These rules determine the format: whether footnotes/endnotes or in text citations are used; whether a bibliography or reference list is used; what information is included and in what order, and how the overall paper appears in terms of margins, title pages, subheadings, etc.
