How to Convert the Chicago Style to MLA Citation

  • Add the format of the reference after the year of publication to convert a Chicago Manual Style Works Cited or bibliography entry to MLA format. For example, where a Chicago Manual Works Cited or bibliography entry is: "Smith, John. The History Of The World (in italics). New York: Columbia University Press, 2011.", the MLA version is: "Smith, John. The History Of The World (in italics). New York: Columbia University, 2011. Print."
  • Enclose the last name of the primary author and the page number of the reference in parentheses when writing an in-text citation in either style. With Chicago Manual, add the year of publication as well. For example, where Chicago Manual in-text citation is: (Smith 2011, 47), MLA in-text citation is: (Smith 47).
  • Make any other changes requested by your instructor. For example, both styles allow both footnotes and in-text citation, though you might be more likely to use in-text citations with MLA.
