Working with Both Editions

Select Default Edition

Subscribers have access to the complete content of the two most recent editions of The Chicago Manual of Style—the current (16th) edition and the previous (15th) edition. Individual subscribers and Group members with individual logins can select either edition as their default on the Select Default Edition page in the Account Administration area; Institutional customers and Group members with a shared login have the 16th edition as their default. Regardless of which edition is set as the default, users can easily access the other edition from any location in The Chicago Manual of Style Online by selecting the Go to [Other] Edition link in the left navigation bar.

Search Either Edition

All users can also specify an edition to search by using the radio buttons below the Search box. Searches return results only for the edition selected via the radio buttons. For more information on searching the two editions, review the Search Tips.

Transfer Notes and Bookmarks

Individual subscribers and Group members with individual logins can transfer their My Manual Notes and Bookmarks for the 15th edition to the 16th edition using the My Manual Transfer feature in the Account Administration area.
