Citation, Documentation of Sources

Q. Do YouTube video blogs that are made by everyday people (i.e., not mainstream corporate companies) need to be cited in the bibliography? Or do they just need a note? If so, what is the style format?

A. Privately made videos are just as much copyrighted as those made by corporations, so provide a complete citation in the note. You can find citation formats for website content at the Chicago-Style Citation Quick Guide. Putting a video into your bibliography is optional. Consider how important it is in your paper and decide accordingly.
