I am trying to change the header from saying "References" to "Works Cited" and insert it on a new blank page.

I tried \refname but it did not work, just a blank space in the pdf. My document is below:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[notes]{biblatex-chicago}

\bibliography{bibliography}
\begin{document}

Hello World!\autocite{clare2}
\pagebreak
\renewcommand\refname{Works Cited}
\end{document}

    Hi! A tip: If you indent lines by 4 spaces, they'll be marked as a code sample. You can also highlight the code and click the "code" button (with "{}" on it). – Claudio Fiandrino May 22 '12 at 19:46

    Are you missing a \printbibliography statement? – Mico May 22 '12 at 20:20

biblatex uses "bibliography strings" for (among other things) the headings of bibliographies, so redefining \bibname (for the book and report class) or \refname (for article) won't work. Try to add the following to your preamble:

\DefineBibliographyStrings{english}{%
  references = {Works Cited},
}

(And as Mico has noted, you're missing \printbibliography.) Compilable example:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[notes]{biblatex-chicago}

\DefineBibliographyStrings{english}{%
  references = {Works Cited},% replace "references" with "bibliography"  for `book`/`report`
}

\usepackage{filecontents}

\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}
@misc{A01,
  author = {Author, A.},
  year = {2001},
  title = {Alpha},
}
\end{filecontents}

\addbibresource{\jobname.bib}

\nocite{*}

\begin{document}

\section{foo}

\clearpage

\printbibliography

\end{document}
