About Chicago or Turabian Style

The Chicago Manual of Style and Turabian Style (found in A manual for writers of research papers, theses, and dissertations : Chicago style for students and researchers by Kate Turabian) of citation use essentially the same format and documentation system, but the Turabian style differs somewhat in order to be more suitable for student work. Copies of the most recent editions of both guides are available at the dowtown and Schaumburg campus libraries, some are for use in the library only.

Creating Bibliography and Footnotes

EasyBib Citation Guide? Footnotes

How Footnotes are used and formatted:

  • Note is created each time a source is referenced
  • A superscript number is added to the end of the sentence that is referenced
  • The Footnote should begin with that number and continue numerically with each additional Footnote (i.e., do not restart numbering on a new page)
  • When a source is cited for subsequent instances, the only information needed is the author’s last name, title of publication (it may be shortened), and the date of the publication.
  • Page numbers will be included when using direct quotations (paraphrasing is preferred but sometimes quotations are needed)
