The Chicago Manual of Style Online

In the 1890s, a proofreader at the University of Chicago Press prepared a single sheet of typographic fundamentals intended as a guide for the University community. That sheet grew into a pamphlet, and the pamphlet grew into a book—the first edition of the Manual of Style, published in 1906. Now in its sixteenth edition, The Chicago Manual of Style is more comprehensive and easier to use than ever before, and provides recommendations on editorial style and publishing practices for the digital age.

The ebooks@cambridge Service is pleased to announce that The Chicago Manual of Style (CMSO) is now available online for University of Cambridge users. You can access the website here.

The online version includes the fully searchable Chicago Style Q&A and convenient Tools such as sample correspondence, proofreaders’ marks and a quick guide to citation.

The CMSO will be searchable in LibrarySearch from later this week, and is accessible off campus when using a Raven login.

If you have any comments or queries about this resource, please email the ebooks@cambridge team on ebooks@lib.cam.ac.uk.
