Citation and Bibliography guides
The history department expects that students completing research papers provide footnote citations consistent with the guidelines of the Chicago Manual of Style, which is the style consistently preferred in history journals. An abbreviated version of the Chicago Manual of Style can be found in Kate Turabian’s A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations, Seventh Edition (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2007). The department recommends that history majors purchase a copy of this work.
The following are online guides to Chicago citation style and are acceptable for use when preparing papers for the department:
