Usage Guides

Style Guides

Many style guides also have online versions, which may require a paid membership to use. Chicago, for example, charges to access the guide online. However, you can search the online index for location and go to the information in your hard copy. You can also often search a Q & A (or Ask the Editor) and submit questions yourself. Very handy.
