About Chicago style

The Chicago Manual of Style is often used to document sources for papers in the humanities (e.g. history, fine arts, and political science). 

The purpose of documentation is to:

  • Identify (cite) other people’s ideas and information used within your essay or term paper.
  • Indicate the authors or sources of these in a Bibliography at the end of your paper.

The Chicago Manual of Style (16th ed.) recognizes two basic styles of citation. This guide is intended as a guideline for the Notes and Bibliography system only.

Be sure to check with your instructor to find out which citation style you should use for an assignment.


This guide was compiled by Red Deer College Library and has been modified with permission by Gina Seymour.
