Online citation guides
The Pacific Islands Studies undergraduate degree requires that you use the Chicago Manual of Style. The below links are to two online resources -- the citation style itself is the same on both sites, but you may find one or the other to be easier to navigate through, depending on which type of resource (book, magazine, film, etc.) you are trying to create a citation for.
Chicago Manual of Style (CMS) citation style

The Chicago Manual of Style Online
Presents two basic documentation systems, the humanities style (notes and bibliography) and the author-date system. Choosing between the two often depends on subject matter and nature of sources cited, as each system is favored by different groups of scholars. Includes common examples of materials cited in both styles. (The University of Chicago)
