Numerical referencing: Chigago referencing
The Chicago Manual of Style is often used to document sources for papers in the humanities (history, fine arts, and political science).
The purpose of documentation is to:
- Identify (cite) other people’s ideas and information used within your essay or assignment.
- Indicate the authors or sources of these in a Bibliography at the end of your assignment.
The Chicago Manual of Style (16th ed.) recognises two basic styles of citation. These pages are intended as a guideline for the notes and bibliography system only. They are split into the following sections:
- General guidelines
- Images and art
Be sure to check with your instructor to find out which citation style you should use for an assignment.
