How to Reference in Turabian

Referencing Lecture Notes

It is usually preferable that students take what they have heard and learned in class and find the information in published, peer-reviewed sources. However, sometimes there is occasion to reference lecture notes. As these are classified as "Unpublished," you can use a similar format to other unpublished material. Below are examples of lecture notes from online classes (Grant Buchanan example) and face-to-face (Dean O'Keefe example).
