Citing Sources

For this class you will be using Chicago Style for your citations.  If you don't find what you need in this abbreviated version of the Chicago Style Guide, you can also consult the Chicago Manual of Style Online, which gives full details on using Chicago style.

Citation management tools help you to efficiently gather citations for the sources you use in one place and to generate a bibliography at the end of your project.
