History: Chicago/Turabian Citation Guides

A Research Guide for History from West Chester University Library.


Chicago is a citation style that is widely used in the humanities,arts, and history.  Turabian is a modified form of Chicago style aimed at students.  Both Chicago and Turabian include two different citation systems:  the Notes-Bibliography system (which uses endnotes or footnotes) and the Parenthetical Citation system (which uses in-text citations).
