COM Library has guides for our most requested citation styles (see link below), but not one for Chicago.

The good news is that if you used COM Library resources you can grab a citation in Chicago style from lots of them. There is a link below that takes you to a great site on Chicago style that should help you format your paper.

Print Books
Look your book up in OneSearch and grab the Chicago style citation:

Articles & Media
You can grab Chicago style citations from some of our most popular databases: Academic OneFile, Britannica, CQ Researcher, Academic Search Complete, Films on Demand, Issues & Controversies, and Research Library. You should note that it might be listed as Chicago or CMS (which stands for Chicago Manual of Style).

If you aren't sure how to grab the citation, go the the Grab a Citation page of the Cite MLA Style guide. The formatting tips are a little different: You do use a hanging indent but you single space each entry and double space in between entries, but how to get the citation is the same. 

Websites
You can do it from scratch or use the zoterobib to help you.
