The Chicago Manual of Style (CMS) provides a method for source documentation that is used in most history courses.
In addition to consulting the The Chicago Manual of Style (17th ed.) for more information, students may also find it useful to consult Kate L. Turabian's Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations (8th ed.). This manual, which presents what is commonly known as the "Turabian" citation style, follows the The Chicago Manual of Style patterns of documentation, but offers slight modifications suited to student needs.
