I never personally used Chicago style citation before... but I have a site that might help.

http://www.bibme.org/


Does it for you!


Say I wanted to you something from your post in a paper. This is what it would roughly look like (I kinda got lazy with filling in the info...)

Here's a guide from UoI (smartzypantz school in Illinois) so it might help explain it a little more.

I've read a bunch of these sites explaining it but I don't get how the format looks on the paper, how often you should put endnotes/footnotes in etc. High school did nothing to prepare me for this... :l

I realise this is a bit late, but no-one seems to have answered it, so I'll try and help anyway.

You add a citation in your paper every time you reference material that isn't your own.

I'll add an excerpt of an essay I wrote using Chicago 15th B style.
Parts of a paragraph I wrote:
Quote:
There is little or no standardisation found in the tools, the shape of the tool depends on the shape and form of the rock it was made from, however, over time, there are some signs of standardisation, including primitive bifacial working (Steele 1999).

...

For example, four hand axes, made from a rock found 100km away at the nearest were found, clearly suggesting some sort of population movement, or exchange (Clark 1988).
And then, at the end of the paper, in the section entitled 'Bibliography' I added the following references:

Quote:
Clark, J. Desmond. 1988. Transitions: Homo erectus and the Acheulian: the Ethiopian sites of Gadeb and the Middle Awash. Journal of Human Evolution 16 (7-8):809-826.

Steele, James. 1999. Palaeoanthropology: Stone legacy of skilled hands. Nature 399 (6731):24-25.
You do this for every paper, article, journal and book that you use to get information for your paper.

I hope that helps, if you have any more questions about it, or if it didn't clear it up, feel free to ask me (:
Hope you paper went well.

"Mind your step I keep the overhead low, just the bed and the books and the rotary phone. Chicago Manual of Style keeps the prose right crisp, Minneapolis edition well it goes like this."

Lol, sry, rap-battling gets the better of me sometimes. I hate parenthetical references. Endnotes only with numbering in the damn text, please. Whatever it is they call that, Scientific Journal Style maybe.

chickenonsteroids: Some college classes ask for this style unfortunately...
Bean: Thanks! I've been explained the endnote way, but I can understand your footnote way of explaining
Jay: Haha yeah I noticed endnotes are way easier too, but still, this style is annoying as hell!!!
