Q. Has Chicago completely eliminated the use of ibid., when quoting more than once from the same source?
A. Not at all. Although Chicago now prefers the use of a short citation, CMOS still covers the use of ibid. at CMOS 17, 14.34, and the new policy is explained in this post at the CMOS Shop Talk blog.
