A bibliography, which appears at the end of your paper, lists every work you have cited in your notes; in addition, it may include works that you consulted but did not cite. This section provides advice on constructing the list. For a sample bibliography, click here.
Model notes and bibliographic entries
The following guidelines are consistent with guidelines set forth in The Chicago Manual of Style, 14th ed. For each type of source, a model note appears first, followed by a model bibliographic entry. The model note shows the format you should use when citing a source for the first time. For subsequent citations of a source, use shortened notes.
The following models illustrate Chicago-style notes and bibliographic entries for books. For information on other types of notes and bibliographic entries, choose one of the following options:
