ELECTRONIC RESOURCES
As of August 1998, there is no comprehensive official Turabian style for citing electronic resources. Interested parties might want to use the formats developed by either the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) or Xia Li and Nancy B. Crane, Electronic Styles: a handbook for citing electronic Information, 2nd ed. (Medford, NJ: Information Today, 1996), which only covers APA and MLA styles.
FOOTNOTES

In the Turabian style, numbers are inserted in the text, then repeated at the beginning of the footnotes or endnotes to guide the reader to source material. A bibliography or reference list is also used.
