Provides resources for finding primary and secondary sources on U.S.-China relations.

Chicago Style

Chicago Style is used mostly by scholars and writers in history, art, and music.  Chicago Style has two documentation systems:

  1. Footnotes or endnotes and a Bibliography.
  2. Parenthetical in-text citations and a Reference List.


Turabian Style was developed for student researchers, and is a derivative of the Chicago style.  The citation formats for the two styles are nearly identical.
