The following guidelines are based on the The Chicago Manual of Style (16th ed.). Numbers in parentheses refer to the specific sections and pages referenced in the manual.
Remember that all sources of information and data, whether quoted directly or paraphrased, are cited with a note in the paper, as well as an entry in the bibliography at the end of the paper. (14.1-14.3 / p. 655)
For more examples and information, consult the WSA Library copy of The Chicago Manual of Style (16th ed.) , located at the librarian's desk.
Note numbers in the text are set as superscript numbers. At the bottom of the page, the note numbers are normally full size and followed by a period. Notes should be numbered consecutively, beginning with 1. In most word processing programs, you can use the "footnote" feature to accomplish this formatting. (14.19 / p. 665)
