A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations: Chicago Style for Students and Researchers by Kate Turabian 7th ed. This Chicago stylebook is written for undergraduates.  (REF DESK LB2369 T8 2007).

The Chicago Manual of Style, 16th ed., the authority used by writers in many disciplines in the humanities and social sciences. Copies are available at the Reference Desk for in-library use (REF DESK  Z253 .U69 2003).

Chicago has provided New Questions and Answers, However, the print Chicago Manual of Style is the only authoritative source of citation rules. Copies are kept at the Reference Desk for Chicago Manual of Stylein-library use.  For a good online explanation of how to list online journals articles, take a look at Chicago's Quick Guide.

Dr. Mandell reminds the class that she does not want to see the name of the database in the citation.  A good example, which she recommends, is found in the Journal of Historians of Netherlandish Art.  This page helpfully includes the DOI, so obviously that's one way students will know whether or not they should include reference to the website.
