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.
