American History: Citation/Writing Resources

Why use Chicago Style or Turabian?

Chicago Style uses numbered footnotes or endnotes in your text, with Bibliography or Works Cited at the end of the paper, listing alphabetically the sources in your notes.

Turabian is based on Chicago Style, modified slightly for student researchers.
