Chicago uses two different forms: the Author-Date system and the Notes and Bibliography system. Make sure you use the proper style and form as requested by your professor. The following quick reference guide will be using Chicago Notes and Bibliography*.
For the first notation, include all of the source information: author, title, and publishing data. When citing a source a second time, include the author’s last name, the abbreviated title, and the pages. If a source is cited more than two times successively, use “Ibid.” followed by the page numbers (if differing). Notes are formatted as footnotes or endnotes beginning with “1.”
*Chicago style uses hanging indents in its bibliography.
