picture of list of citations

Chicago (Turabian) style is the most frequently used style for the discipline of history.  It allows you to use either footnote or parenthetical author-year citation -- ask your professor which (s)he prefers.  There is a brief online guide to citation using the Chicago style at the University of Wisconsin Writing Center.

Ellis Library also has a copy of the latest edition of the guide at Ready Reference Z253.U69.
