Turabian style is most often used for courses in the literature, arts, and history. It is based on two systems of documentation:
- Notes-Bibliography style (Bibliography style)
- Parenthetical citations-Reference list style (Reference List style)
Turabian style is very similar to Chicago style. However, The Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses and Dissertations by Kate Turabian provides standard guidelines for student papers and scholarly research not intended for publication. The Chicago style includes publishing details.
Copies of The Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses and Dissertations are available at the Reference desk and older editions are available in the Circulating Collection.
