Guide to Referencing

The University of Divinity observes the Notes-Bibliography style of referencing outlined in the latest edition of The Chicago Manual of Style.

Rules and examples for commonly cited materials follow (see tabs on left), and more complex referencing advice may be found in The Chicago Manual of Style Online via the UD Library Hub.

When following the rule for notes or bibliography entries you should include all the punctuation, capitalisation, italics and spacing as they are set out here. Note that second and subsequent citations of a work are abbreviated in a specific way.

When preparing a Bibliography, sources should be presented on a separate page and listed in alphabetical order by Author Surname. Sources without an author should be listed before sources with authors.
