HIST 2210: North American Indigenous Peoples

This guide is intended as a point to departure for research in history. You will find search strategies and writing resources to help guide you through your HIST 2210 writing project.


The Chicago Manual of Style (CMOS) is published by the University of Chicago Press and is often used in business, history, fine arts, and the humanities. There are two different systems of CMOS, "Notes and Bibliography" and "Author/Date."  This guide will focus on the more popular Notes and Bibliography system. This format requires either footnotes or endnotes and a bibliography at the end of the paper.

CMOS also has specific rules related to capitalization, abbreviations, the appearance of dates, and punctuation in citations that are unique to this style and help distinguish it from others. 

NOTE: This LibGuide is not exhaustive - if you do not see the type of source your are tying to cite, please consult the Chicago Manual of Style Online (linked below).
