Citations & Bibliographies

This guide provides a brief overview of the purpose of citation and major citation styles.

Chicago Style Overview and Examples

The "notes and bibliography" variant of Chicago style allows you to use numbered endnotes or footnotes in the places where APA and MLA styles use parenthetical in-text citations. There is also an option to use the "author/date" variation if you prefer parenthetical in-text citations. 

Notes and bibliography example:

Algorithms of Oppression enumerates ways that discrimination is "embedded in computer code and, increasingly, in artificial intelligence technologies that we are reliant on, by choice or not."¹
