Turabian and SBL are both modified forms of Chicago style. There are nuances of difference, but for most practical purposes, the basic citations are the same across the three styles. When using one of these styles, there are two options: 

  1. Notes and Bibliography
  2. Author-Date.

These are NOT generally used in the same paper, and which is preferred can vary from instructor to instructor, so if you are unsure, check with your instructor.
