Chicago-style source citations come in two varieties: (1) notes and bibliography and (2) author-date.
This guide will follow the author-date system.
"The author-date system is more common in the sciences and social sciences. In this system, sources are briefly cited in the text, usually in parentheses, by author’s last name and year of publication. Each in-text citation matches up with an entry in a reference list, where full bibliographic information is provided." CMOS
The notes and bibliography system is preferred in the humanities, literature, history, and the arts.
