how to write a works cited page
Arrange entries in alphabetical order by the first term in each entry (the first author’s last name or the title of the work when there is no author).
Use hanging indention for each entry. Begin each entry flush with the left margin; indent all subsequent lines one-half inch.
For full guidance, please consult The Chicago Manual of Style Online (access for UNC affiliates via Onyen login).
In Chicago style, the works-cited page should be double-spaced, with the same spacing within and between citations.

Placement and Formatting the List of Works Cited
The list of works cited appears at the end of the paper, after any endnotes. Begin the list on a new page. The list contains the same running head as the main text. The page numbering in the running head continues uninterrupted throughout. For example, if the text of your research paper (including any endnotes) ends on page 10, the works-cited list begins on page 11. Center the title, Works Cited, an inch from the top of the page. (If the list contains only one entry, make the heading Work Cited.) Double-space between the title and the first entry. Begin each entry flush with the left margin; if an entry runs more than one line, indent the subsequent line or lines half an inch from the left margin. This format is sometimes called hanging indention, and you can set your writing program to create it automatically for a group of paragraphs. Hanging indention makes alphabetical lists easier to use. Double-space the entire list. Continue it on as many pages as necessary.
