Students have access to the official versions of the Chicago Manual of Style and The Bluebook as well as the abbreviated APUS ePress MLA and APA style guides. 

Click here to access:

We do not have a separate version of the Turabian guide (see note below). Turabian, however, is based on the Chicago guide, so if you don't have your own copy of Turabian, check the Chicago guide.

Please note that the APUS ePress APA and MLA editions are not the complete guides. Neither the official APA, MLA, or Turabian style guides are available in an institutional version from their publishers. This means we cannot license them for student use.

You are free to purchase your own copies of the APA, MLA, and Turabian style guides directly from their respective publishers or from the bookseller of your choice.
