Which Style to Use?

For this assignment, Professor Aleci strongly prefers that you use the notes-bibliography style of Chicago, 17th edition. For more on Chicago, visit the Purdue OWL page linked below.

Remember, you can use Zotero to help you manage your citations and references. Contact Anna with any questions about Zotero. 

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
