Style Manuals

Which should you use?

It is best to ask each of your professors which style they want you to use. Most professors at The Saint Paul Seminary School of Divinity now use the Chicago/Turabian Style Manual, however a few faculty members may still be asking their students to use the MLA Style Manual. 

Print versions of the style manuals contain examples of citing more sources than their web pages do, as well as other things you may need to know, such as margins, font size, etc.

If you have a quick question on formatting citations for your footnotes and bibliography - try the library guides at Long Island University as they are color coded and easy to use...

Check with your instructors on the preferred style they want you to use and be sure to consult the most up-to-date edition of that style manual.
