Chicago Citation Style

Chicago Citation Style was created by the University of Chicago Press and is most commonly used by researchers in literature, history, and the arts. Chicago Citation Style has two documentation styles:

Notes-Bibliography, which uses footnotes within the paper and a bibliography at the end.

Author-Date, which uses parenthetical in-text citations and a reference list. 

Chicago Manual of Style

The Chicago Manual of Style is available online to UH students, faculty, and staff. It is the definitive source for details on citing references in Chicago Citation Style. If you'd prefer to use a paper copy, there is one available at the M.D. Anderson Library's Service Desk.
