Help is at hand - you now have access to The Chicago Manual of Style Online.

This provides authoritative guidance on citing sources, reference formats, grammar and usage, and on how to deal with punctuation, names, numbers, tables, quotations, dialogue, spelling, abbreviations, etc.

It includes tips for citing e-books, blogs, podcasts, and other online and digital sources, and covers writing for many kinds of papers and publications.
