Chicago Citation Quick Guide

The Chicago Manual of Style has two methods of documentation, the humanities style (notes and bibliography) and the author-date style. The humanities style is preferred in literature, history, and the arts. The author-date method is useful in the physical, natural, and social sciences. Sources are cited in the text: (authors last name, publication date, and page number). Details about each reference are listed in the References or Works Cited page, by: Author's last name.
