Chicago Style Citations primarily uses Footnotes or Endnotes. Notes are indicated by number within the text and a corresponding citation is located either at the bottom of the page (footnotes) or at the end of the document (endnotes).

At the end of your paper, you will create a bibliography. A bibliography is an alphabetical list of all sources you used in your paper. A bibliography is formatted differently than a note. In the example, the N indicates the note format and the B indicates the bibliography format. 

The Chicago Manual of Style also has recommendations on how to format a paper. Check the below links for more information.
