NOTE: The format of citations for multivolume works depends on a number of variables, including whether all volumes were published in the same year, whether individual volumes have a single author or multiple authors, whether the set has an editor, whether each volume has a unique title, and whether you wish to cite the work as a whole or only a single volume of the work. If you are unsure of how to cite a multivolume source you've used, it is best to consult the Manual, 14.116-14.122.
