The exact type of citation is going to vary according to the style manual being followed. (Here in the U.S., for instance, the manuals used most often are from the Modern Language Association, the American Psychological Association, and the University of Chicago.) The MLA Manual has just been revised. You can access the section on electronic media documentation by going from the home page at www.mla.org The latest version, which deals with films online and on CD-ROM, looks to me like an improvement over earlier citation examples for film. However, I think that if the standards in your format aren't entirely clear, it's useful to keep in mind the basic principles of what citations should be for, i.e., a service to the reader. Therefore, when in doubt, follow the patterns for other types of citations in that format. I tell my students that the basic rules should be Clarity (the citations follow a specific format so that individual entries can be understood by anyone who knows the format's usual structure); Completeness (the citation should provide enough information so that the source is easy to locate); and Consistency (don't mix styles!).
