E-books  

Books consulted online: Include a URL or, if accessed through a password-controlled library database, a DOI. If a DOI is not available, include the name of the database. [14.11, 14.161]

Access Dates: Chicago does not require access dates in its citations of electronic sources unless no date of publication can be determined from the source. However, students may be required by their instructors to include access dates in their papers. If so, the access date should immediately precede the URL or name of the database. [14.12]

Page numbers: In e-books these may vary depending on the application or device used and will only be helpful to those who consult the same e-book format. In such cases, it is best to cite a chapter number or section heading in lieu of a page number. (see first Note example below) [14.160]
