The biblatex-chicago package implements the citation style of the Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition. In this example, the notes option causes biblatex's autocite command to put citations in footnotes. The package can also produce inline author-year citations in the Chicago style. See the package documentation for more information.
This example shows how to automatically generate citations and a bibliography with biblatex and biber.
Biblatex and biber work together to automatically format references and citations like the older cite or natbib and bibtex tool chain, but they offer more powerful and easier to use formatting and better support for special characters (unicode).
For a full list of biblatex styles, see the user guide in the biblatex manual.
