This guide will assist you in understanding how to reference for your assignment. It contains examples to help you format your in-text citations and reference list.
The Chicago 17 Author-Date is an author-date style, meaning in-text citations (author year) are used to acknowledge the author(s) of ideas and quotes you have included in the body of your assignment. The details of these citations are then included in a reference list, organised alphabetically, at the end of your assignment.
