This guide is intended to cover only the Notes and Bibliography system for citing audiovisual media.
For each type of source in this guide, both the general form and a specific example will be provided.
The following format will be used:
Full Note - use the first time that you cite a source.
Concise Note - use after the first time you cite a source.
Bibliography - use when you are compiling the Bibliography that appears at the end of your paper.
Information on citing and several of the examples were drawn from The Chicago Manual of Style (17th ed.).
Numbers in parentheses refer to specific pages in the manual.
Note in the example the placing of the original publication year as versus the DVD release year.

Please ask a librarian for assistance if you are having trouble with citations.
