What is Chicago Style?

The Chicago Manual of Style, first published in 1906, has long been a standard reference book for writers, particularly those in the disciplines of literature, history and the arts. 
 
This library guide covers the Notes and Bibliography System of Chicago Style, often used by those in the humanities and history. It does not include the Author-Date System, frequently used in the natural, physical and social sciences. Be sure you know which system your professor requires.
 
If you have a question not answered in this guide, ask your instructor, check with a librarian, or refer to the Chicago Manual of Style at the Library for more detailed information.
