I'm writing a paper with LaTeX and trying to get the \bibliographystyle to work correctly.

I'm using the chicago manual reference style. In my .tex file a have declared:

\usepackage{chicago}
\bibliographystyle{chicago}

And I use BibDesk for Mac to generate my .bib-files. It works, but I have one problem. URLs are not referenced in the right way, according to the Chicago Manual. http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/tools_citationguide.html says it should look something like this:

  1. “Google Privacy Policy,” last modified March 11, 2009, hxxp://www.google.com/intl/en/privacypolicy.html.
  2. “McDonald’s Happy Meal Toy Safety Facts,” McDonald’s Corporation, accessed July 19, 2008, hxxp://www.mcdonalds.com/corp/about/factsheets.html.

But LaTeX only gives me something like this:

  • Bank, N. (2011, 04). Bruken av kort og nettbank øker fortsatt.

It does not include the URL to the site, even though I have defined the URL in my .bib-file.

How can I get this to work correctly, with the correct style? Thanks for all answers.

PS: I don't HAVE to use the Chicago Reference Style, I can use others, if that makes things simpler, but I read somewhere that It's a good style for writing engineering papers (computer science). (If you have other suggestions, that is also welcome).

Edit. Additional info: This is the bib-file that BibDesk generates for a webpage:

 @webpage{norges-bank-okning,
   Author = {Norges Bank},
   Date-Added = {2011-04-02 18:39:21 +0200},
   Date-Modified = {2011-04-02 19:19:30 +0200},
   Keywords = {web},
   Lastchecked = {02.04.2011},
   Month = {04},
   Title = {Bruken av kort og nettbank {\o}ker fortsatt},
   Url = {http://www.norges-bank.no/templates/article____16691.aspx},
   Urldate = {02.04.2011},
   Year = {2011}}

If you want to change to biblatex, you can use biblatex-chicago; here's a little example:

\begin{filecontents*}{mybiblio.bib}
@article{S, 
  author = "Spivak, M.",
  year = "1969",
  title = "Unknown",
  url = "http://www.spivak.org"
}
\end{filecontents*}

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[authordate]{biblatex-chicago}

\addbibresource{mybiblio.bib}

\begin{document}

\autocite{S}

\printbibliography

\end{document}

EDIT: using the bib entry in the question's EDIT, I used the following code (note that I used the organization field instead of the author field and changed the urldate format as required by biblatex):

\begin{filecontents*}{mybiblio.bib}
@online{norges-bank-okning,
   organization = {Norges Bank},
   Date-Added = {2011-04-02 18:39:21 +0200},
   Date-Modified = {2011-04-02 19:19:30 +0200},
   Keywords = {web},
   Lastchecked = {02.04.2011},
   Month = {04},
   Title = {Bruken av kort og nettbank {\o}ker fortsatt},
   Url = {http://www.norges-bank.no/templates/article____16691.aspx},
   Urldate = {2011-04-02},
   Year = {2011}}
\end{filecontents*}

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[authordate]{biblatex-chicago}
\usepackage{filecontents}

\addbibresource{mybiblio.bib}

\begin{document}

\autocite{norges-bank-okning}

\printbibliography

\end{document}

and obtained the following result:

Thnx. But I get an error when I try your example. /usr/local/texlive/2010/texmf-dist/tex/latex/biblatex-chicago-notes-df/biblatex -chicago.sty:39: Package keyval Error: 14 undefined. See the keyval package documentation for explanation. Type H <return> for immediate help. ... l.39 \ProcessOptions* ? –  user4601 Apr 2 '11 at 19:04
    
My example code compiles OK in my system, so perhaps you are using some outdated package(s)? –  Gonzalo Medina Apr 2 '11 at 19:47

I found a solution that worked. I defined the entry as @misc and in the Howpublished field I put \url{www.url.com}.

This worked great.

\usepackage{hyperref}
\usepackage{breakurl}
\usepackage{chicago}
\bibliographystyle{chicago}

And my .bib-entry like this.

@misc{norges-bank-okning,
    Author = {Norges Bank},
    Date-Added = {2011-04-02 18:39:21 +0200},
    Date-Modified = {2011-04-02 21:16:52 +0200},
    Howpublished = {\url{http://www.norges-bank.no/templates/article____16691.aspx}},
    Keywords = {web},
    Lastchecked = {02.04.2011},
    Month = {04},
    Title = {Bruken av kort og nettbank {\o}ker fortsatt},
    Url = {http://www.norges-bank.no/templates/article____16691.aspx},
    Urldate = {02.04.2011},
    Year = {2011}}

url is a non-standard BibTeX field, and thus support for that field is often hit-and-miss, which is why it doesn't display in your original example. Unfortunately, if when the next version of BibTeX is released, the url field becomes supported, your current work-around may result in the url being displayed twice in future documents. –  Willie Wong Apr 3 '11 at 0:06
