Welcome to the guide for Citing References Using Chicago Manual of Style!
We hope that you will find this guide a useful starting place for information on Chicago Manual of Style, 17th edition and Turabian. We have assembled a core collection of resources available through the Wayne State University Library System, as well as high quality, freely available web resources. This guide is a collaborative work-in-progress, developed with the suggestions and feedback from students and faculty.
Note: Turabian style is built on Chicago Manual of Style, with specific requirements for the formatting of class papers, theses, or dissertations. The general formatting rules are:
-Margins of atleast one inch on all sides
-Single, readable font (Arial, Times New Roman, etc.) with a font size equivalent to at least 12-point Times New Roman
-Double-spaced in all areas (exceptions are block quotes, table titles and figure captions, lists in appendixes, table of contents, footnotes/endnotes, and bibliographies/reference lists)
