Citation Style

Since Professor Flaherty doesn't have a preference, I suggest you use the Chicago Manual of Style 17th edition for your junior paper.  The notes/bibliography style seems ideal.  I suggest using full citations followed by shortened citations for the same sources. URLs are listed once in the notes and again in the bibliography. This style has to be added to Zotero by clicking get additional styles when specifying your Zotero preferences.

I have detailed instructions on installing and using Zotero which offers this style as an add-in.  In addition, I'm holding a Zotero workshop on February 19 at 1PM or we can set up a one-on-one appointment with me.
