Citing Sources -- Chicago -- Author-date style

Reference list for Internet sources

Please note that chapter 15 of the Manual does not include direct examples of webpage citations, so these citation examples are extrapolated from information in chapter 14.

Please also note that these examples refer to Web pages retrieved from the free Internet.  They do not refer to e-books, nor do they refer to articles from databases or online encyclopedias accessible through the library.  For examples of citing these types of materials, click on the books, articles, and/or encyclopedias links to the left.
