Citation Guide: Chicago Manual of Style (Author/Date System)

Citing Sources at the End of Your Document

The end documentation in the CMS Author/Date system is the References List page. It is located at the end of a document or book and contains all the bibliographic information needed to find out more about cited source material.

This list is a selective bibliography and does not include a full accounting of sources related to or consulted before you began writing your document, but only those actually cited.

Proper CMS documentation depends on the References List. Without it the in-text numbers would make little sense as they would no longer be pointing at any corresponding entries in the end documentation.
