Using and Citing Audio and Multimedia

The Chicago Manual of Style delineates two different systems of citation. The Notes-Bibliography style uses either foot- or end-notes to cite sources in-text, followed by a separate Bibliography page including all works used. The Author-Date style uses a parenthetical reference, including page number, to cite a work in-text e.g. (Smith 2003, 99) followed by a separate References List. Recordings are generally grouped in a separate discography, rather than in the bibliography. If cited in the bibiography, group recordings under a subhead.
