The guide has been compiled using The Chicago Manual of Style (16th ed.).
Chicago is a style using footnotes to detail in-text citations, with a reference list/ bibliography of all sources cited, presented at the end of the piece of work in alphabetical order by author.
It is important to give page numbers for in-text citations in the following circumstances:
Examples below show the full footnote for different sources and a shortened version for if the source is cited again. A corresponding reference that would appear in the reference list/ bibliography is also given. It is important also to note in some examples where departments have a particular preference regarding the information to include in the references.
For History of Art students: Word counts include quotations and footnotes, but not the bibliography, plate captions or appendices. (This relates to page 7 Reference with Confidence: the Chicago Style, produced prior to Chicago's adoption by History of Art).
