We have a number of ways to help you cite using Turabian Formatting Style:

1. Kate Turabian’s A Manual for Writers (8th edition): Use chapters 16 and 17, not 18 and 19. The library does have a number of physical copies of this manual and the call number is LB2369 .T8 2013

2. Liberty’s Turabian Quick Guide.

3. For additional information about Turabian citations, the JFL has created a short video tutorial.

4. There are a number of Powerpoint and PDF guides available on the Writing Center’s website.

5.You can submit your paper to the Writing Center for review.

6. Turabian Quick Guide.

7. Ebscohost citations: If you find an article in an Ebscohost database, click on the article and on the right hand side, there will be a toolbar with the option to "cite." Click here and you will have the citation for the article. Always double check to make sure this citation is properly formatted. For Seminary papers, use the Chicago/Turabian:Humanities format. This format says that all "important" words are to be capitalized, so often the capitalization has to be changed.

8. Worldcat: By finding your book at a website called Worldcat, you will be able to click on the article and use their tool labeled "cite/export" to get a Turabian citation of the source. This tool is located on the top-right of the entry page for your resource.
