Chicago (CMOS)

The Chicago Manual of Style (CMOS or just Chicago) citation and format style is "most commonly used to cite sources within history and the arts" (Purdue OWL). 

For more information on Chicago and examples of citations, visit the Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL) Chicago website and navigate using the left-hand side menu.

Fairfield University also has a helpful guide to Chicago citation. There are separate guides for Notes/Bibliography and Author/Date. Be sure to check with your faculty member to see which they would like you to use. 

The College Library also provides direct access to the Chicago Manual of Style

Citation Management Tools

Citation Management Tools, like Zotero and Mendeley, can help you stay organized when researching by gathering and organizing citation info for your sources. 

There are pros and cons to each tool, but we recommend starting with Zotero, since it's a open-source tool that you can take with you after you leave F&M. For more information on Zotero & Mendeley, visit the links below.
