The University of Chicago, which publishes the Chicago Manual of Style, offers a quick guide with a basic overview of citation formatting. It looks as though there are two systems for citing:

"The Chicago Manual of Style presents two basic documentation systems: (1) notes and bibliography and (2) author-date. Choosing between the two often depends on subject matter and the nature of sources cited, as each system is favored by different groups of scholars.

The notes and bibliography style is preferred by many in the humanities, including those in literature, history, and the arts. This style presents bibliographic information in notes and, often, a bibliography. It accommodates a variety of sources, including esoteric ones less appropriate to the author-date system."

As for the specific formatting, here are some examples.
