The Chicago Manual of Style covers two different styles of referencing: Notes and Bibliography and Author-Date. The Notes and Bibliography style is covered in this guide. It uses numbered footnotes.
Our examples are based on the Chicago Manual of Style Online (CMOS 17) with particular reference to chapter 14.
The Q&A and the Citation Quick Guide sections of the Chicago Manual of Style Online can also be used for further guidance.
You can also use the Academic Skills Unit's LEO resources on academic writing, referencing, and academic integrity to develop your skills. There are workshops and consultations available where you can get help.
