Cite the Articles You Find
For your research in this course, you should cite primary and secondary sources according to the Chicago Manual of Style, 16th ed. The print version of the Chicago Manual of Style is available at the Park Library (call number REFERENCE Z253 .C57) and you can also purchase an online version for $35 per year.
The manual itself has been affectionately referred to as "the doorstop" because of its bulk, so you may find helpful three versions of "Chicago lite." They are:
- Kate L. Turabian, A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations: Chicago Style for Students and Researchers, 7th ed., revised by Wayne C. Booth, Gregory G. Colomb, Joseph M. Williams, and University of Chicago Press Staff. (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2007). Available in print at the Park Library (call number REFERENCE LB2369 .T8 2007).
- Purdue Online Writing Lab: Chicago Manual of Style 16th Edition.
- Please note that the Chicago Manual of Style allows for two types of reference styles:
- the Author-Date System (in text) and
- the Documentary-Note Style (using footnotes or endnotes). You should use the Documentary-Note Style with footnotes or endnotes.
