About Chicago Style Citations

The Chicago Manual of Style consists of two basic documentation styles:

Notes-Bibliography (NB) is common in art history, theology, history, and other humanities disciplines. NB format uses footnotes and endnotes with a bibliography at the end of the document to record sources

Author-Date (AD) is sometimes used in the social sciences. In the Author-Date system, sources are cited in the text, usually in parentheses, by author's last name and date of publication and expanded upon in a list of references at the end of the document, where full bibliographic information is provided.
