The Chicago Manual of Style, 16th ed., is the authoritative book used by writers in many disciplines in the humanities and social sciences. Printed copies are available at some PCC campus libraries for in-library use only.

Student's Guide to Writing College Papers (2010) is based on The Chicago Manual of Style, and is excellent for undergraduate writers. It was originated by Kate Turabian, and is usually known as "Turabian."   Printed copies are available at some PCC campus libraries for check-out.

Additional online resources:

Unofficial guide: CSUF Chicago Citation Style (PDF) provides a two-page overview of some of the most common citation needs for footnote/endnote and bibliography.

Unofficial guide: Research and Documentation Online: Chicago Style This is a section of Diane Hacker's web site.  It is based upon her latest printed textbook.

Official guide: The University of Chicago Press has provided New Questions and Answers, which provides answers to real questions users have asked. However, the print Chicago Manual of Style is the only authoritative source of citation rules. (See above.)
