Citing Sources

Chicago (or the closely related Turabian) style is a frequently used style for the discipline of philosophy.  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.  The University of Georgia has produced a brief online guide to the Turabian style.

Ellis Library also has a copy of the latest edition of both guides in the Ready Reference section.
