This guide provides examples of 17th Edition Chicago Manual of Style citations that are most commonly used by students at the College of DuPage. For additional examples and rules, please consult the Chicago Manual of the Style (17th ed., 2017).
This seventeenth edition of The Chicago Manual of Style has been prepared with an eye toward how we find, create, and cite information that readers are as likely to access from their pockets as from a bookshelf.
This manual has a three-part structure, beginning with an overview of the steps in the research and writing process. Part II provides an overview of citation practices, an array of source types with contemporary examples, and detailed guidance on citing online resources. The final section treats all matters of editorial style, with advice on punctuation, capitalization, spelling, abbreviations, table formatting, and the use of quotations.
