This workshop provides an overview of CMOS and where to find help with different CMOS resources. It provides an annotated list of likes to all our CMOS materials and a CMOS overview. It is an excellent place to start to learn about CMOS format.

CMOS (Chicago Manual of Style) is most commonly used to cite sources within history and the arts. This resource, revised according to the 17th edition of CMOS, offers examples for the general format of CMOS research papers, footnotes/endnotes, and the bibliography.
