see Turabian §17.9.1 (pp. 204–205)
Standard, well-known reference works are usually cited in the notes only, and are excluded from the bibliography. Such works may be cited using standard abbreviations, such as those found in the SBL Handbook of Style; or by title alone, omitting the other publication details.
For works that are arranged alphabetically, you may use the relevant entry name preceded by “s.v.” (Latin, sub verbo, “under the word”; plural: s.vv.) in place of the volume and page numbers. However, when the entries are signed (i.e. the contributor who authored each entry is indicated), you should instead adapt the note format for citing an essay/article within a book (note 2 below).
|note||1 BDAG, s.v. “εἴδωλον, ου, τό.”|
|2 Christopher J. H. Wright, “אֶרֶץ,” in NIDOTTE, 1:520.|
Lesser known reference works should be cited in full in both the notes and the bibliography.
