Citing government docs with Chicago

For students embarking on their Global Studies 10 research journey, the following resources may be helpful as a supplement to Noodle Tools when citing government documents in accordance with The Chicago Manual of Style (a.k.a. CMS):

Even though the 16th edition of The Chicago Manual of Style was published in 2010, because it provides less guidance about government documents than the 15th edition (1993), the older edition is generally consulted for this category of source.

As with ANY source you’re citing in Noodle Tools (or another citation generator), the citation generated will only be as accurate as the input you provide when you’re creating the citation.

The most critical step to citing accurately is pausing to determine exactly what type of document is on your screen or on the paper in front of you. If you’re not sure, ask a Social Studies teacher or a librarian.
