You are required to use the Chicago manual of style for your citations in this class. I also recommend taking a look at the Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL) website for more help.
The Chicago Manual of Style by University of Chicago Staff (Editor)
Publication Date: 2010-08-01
The Sixteenth Edition is available in book form and as a subscription website. The Chicago Manual of Style is an authoritative, trusted source that writers, editors, and publishers turn to for guidance on style and process. For the sixteenth edition, every aspect of coverage has been reconsidered to reflect how publishing professionals work today. It offers expanded information on producing electronic publications, including web-based content and e-books. An updated appendix on production and digital technology demystifies the process of electronic workflow and offers a primer on the use of XML markup, and a revised glossary includes a host of terms associated with electronic as well as print publishing. The Chicago system of documentation has been streamlined and adapted for a variety of online and digital sources. Figures and tables are updated throughout the book—including a return to the Manual’s popular hyphenation table and new, comprehensive listings of Unicode numbers for special characters. With the wisdom of a hundred years of editorial practice and a wealth of industry expertise from both Chicago’s staff and an advisory board of publishing professionals, the Manual is authoritative.
Gives an overview and examples for the most common kinds of entries.
