For each type of source in this guide, the general form and specific examples will be provided for both the Notes-Bibliography and the Author-Date style options of Turabian.
This information and several of the examples were drawn from A manual for writers of research papers, theses, and dissertations (8th edition). Numbers in parentheses refer to specific pages in the manual.
For further information, please ask your instructor or refer to the Turabian manual.
For Notes-Bibliography style, cite interviews in the notes and only include it in the bibliography if it is vital to your argument. Include the name of person being interviewed, name of the person conducting the interview, location and date of the interview, and location of the transcripts if applicable. To cite conversations, e-mails, text messages, include the name of the person, type of communication, and date (pp. 194-5). For information on how to handle anonymous interviews, see pages 194 and 195 of the Manual.
