Chicago Style - Introduction - Bibliographic Form

This section of the Online Citation Guide deals with citing information in the Chicago Style.  The Chicago style has two forms: notes and bibliographies.  The examples here are in bibliographic form. 

Bibliographic citations have a hanging indent form, e.g. the second line is indented rather than the first. 

The title of the page is "Bibliography." Citations are given in alphabetical order. The page is double-spaced. 

Notes can be either footnotes or endnotes.  Footnotes are given on the bottom of the page on which they are referenced.  Endnotes are given at the end of the document on a separate page.  Check with your instructor for his/her preferences. 

Notes are numbered consecutively, beginning with 1.  The process for inserting notes in Microsoft Word is described on Slide 5-7 of IA and in Section 5.11 of the IA Guide.
