I became in need of The Chicago Manual of Style this week, and I don’t own a copy.
We called the local library, to see if its shelves bore a copy of the style guide. The response: The Siloam Springs Public Library does have a copy of the style book — from 1993. I declined that offer, and promptly signed up for the 30-day free trial of the online version of the style book.
Next time, I’ll get out and buy a current copy of the book.
