- The Chicago Manual of Style = 1026 pages
- MDML’s “Citing Music Resources Using Chicago Style” = 5 pages!
Inspired by a music citation guide prepared by Prof. Julie Cumming for past Schulich School of Music courses, Music Library staff have produced an updated guide based on the 16th edition of The Chicago Manual of Style. The most commonly consulted rules for bibliography format are summarized and models are provided for all major types of documents, with an emphasis on music resources (e.g. scores, recordings, Grove articles).
Find the guide, “Citing Music Resources Using Chicago Style (Bibliography Format),” on the Library’s website, along with other reference sources for style manuals, writing guides, and citation guides. Of course, the complete Chicago Manual of Style (online and in print) is still the essential guide to issues of complex citation as well as general writing style and manuscript preparation.
