Online Style Help

The OWL at Purdue offers an excellent online resource for details about the Chicago style

Chicago and Turabian

The Chicago style is used most frequently by historians, and the 16th edition is the most recent and comprehensive.  A simpler version of the Chicago style intended for students is offered in the Kate Turabian's  A manual for writers of research papers, theses, and dissertations : Chicago style for students and researchers. This manual, which presents what is commonly known as the "Turabian" citation style, follows Chicago patterns but offers slight modifications suited to student texts.
