It’s that time of year again – Finals Week. If you’re anything like me, you are rushing to put finishing touches on your final papers and fretting about the formatting of your bibliographies. After all, who wants to miss out on that A because you forgot your hanging indentation, or the comma in your in-text citation? We can help. The library now has access to The Chicago Manual of Style Online. This is the 16th Edition of the publication and is part of the first simultaneous publication of the print and online editions of the manual. Just in time, right?
The manual is as easy to use online as it is in print. Browse the Table of Contents or Index to find answers to your questions. The content of this edition is fully searchable and includes a number of new features, such as expanded coverage of electronic publications and tips for citing blogs, podcasts, and more. Significant changes to previous rules are listed here. Other features include proofreaders’ marks, sample correspondence, and the popular Chicago Style Q&A (also fully searchable). If you have a question not included in the Q&A, you can submit a question here. Don’t have time to wait for an answer? IM the Miami University Libraries!
You can access the Chicago Manual of Style from the libraries A-Z Databases list or from this link: http://www.lib.muohio.edu/indexes/redirect/962
