TURABIAN IN A NUTSHELL
For more information on bibliographic formatting, consult the 7th edition of Kate Turabian's A Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Theses, and Dissertations. Turabian is a simplified guide to the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th edition [Ref. Brite Z253 .U69 2003]. The Chicago style of documentation is not rigid; it does allow for some variations. The examples below represent the preferences of the Brite Librarian, Charles Bellinger. Other professors at Brite may have different preferences.
