Chicago Manual (also called Turabian) is a citation style developed by the University of Chicago.  While similar to MLA and APA, it uses a footnote system that allows you to cite sources in-text and then include the details of that source on the bottom of the page in the footer.  Chicago Manual is most common in history & other humanities classes.

Note: These guides are created in the Chicago Manual note and bibliography format as that is the format most used in history courses.
