A guide to citation style resources for writing assignments.

Different Chicago Styles

The Chicago Manual of Style offers two unique ways to format your paper: Author-Date or Notes-Bibliography. Before you begin work on your paper, you should determine which version of the Chicago Style you want to use. 

The Author-Date (AD) version allows for standard citations with a Reference page. 

The Notes-Bibliography (NB) system allows for footnote or endnote citations in addition to your bibliography. 

For sample papers of both styles, review the Chicago Online Guides tab.
