If you google Chicago style online, thereare many websites that show you how to properly create citations. If you are havingtrouble with citation format – someone in the library or the SHU writing center should beable to help you with this. I reserve the right to not accept papers without citations, orpapers that do not follow the formatting directions written above.
A title page or bibliography does not count toward the paper length.
