Chicago and Turabian: The Same But Different

Turabian is essentially a simplified version of Chicago Style.  Chicago/Turabianis a good choice for a general, all-purpose citation guide.

"Turabian" takes its name from Kate Turabian, the dissertation secretary at the University of Chicago for over 30 years who developed a guide for students and researchers writing papers, theses, and dissertations. This guide has evolved and has been revised many times, and, while based on the University of Chicago Press's Manual of Style, simplifies and departs from it in some aspects.

Check with your professor to make sure you use the citation style that they require. The Purdue OWL Research and Citation Resources Guide is a general guide that summarizes and provides basic examples of of the styles listed here, and is a good place to get an overview.
