The Chicago (Turabian) citation style uses footnotes. Visit MiraCosta College Library's Chicago Citation Guide to learn how to format your paper and prepare footnotes in this style. Purdue OWL's Guide to Chicago Manual of Style is also a helpful resource.

Please note: Interpreting a citation guide to Chicago style can be confusing! Unlike APA or MLA formats, Chicago style uses footnotes or endnotes, plus a bibliography. So citation guide examples will always be given in pairs: one for the footnote or endnote (it will start with a number), and an unnumbered citation below it used in the bibliography. Note the difference in punctuation and order or name and last name, as well as the use of parenthesis.
