Chicago Citation Assistance

For this assignment, you will need to use the Chicago Style Manual to create your in-text parenthetical documentation and your bibliography at the end of your paper. This Manual is available for use upstairs in the reference section of the library.

There are basically two types of Chicago style citations. One is the author-date style and the other is the documentary-note (humanities) style. For this assignment, you are to use the documentary-note (humanities) type.

The first link below gives the best example of how this type appears in your paper. Citation guides are available on the M.P. Baker Library website. We suggest using NoodleTools Express.

Plagiarism: From the Latin plagiarius, meaning "kidnapper." Copying or closely imitating the work of another writer, composer, etc., without permission and with the intention of passing the results off as original work. In publishing, copyright law makes literary theft a criminal offense. At most colleges and universities, plagiarism is considered a moral and ethical issue, and instructors impose penalties on students who engage in it. Plagiarism can be avoided by expressing a thought, idea, or concept in one's own words. When it is necessary to paraphrase closely, the source should be documented with a parenthetical citation and listed in the references at the end of the paper.
