Using biblatex with the chicago-authordate style, I want to typeset a citation with multiple sources and page specifications as "(Hacking 1975, p. 49; Hald 1990, p. 31)".

Ideally, it would something like the MWE below:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[style=chicago-authordate,natbib=true,backend=biber]{biblatex}
\bibliography{references}

\begin{filecontents}{references.bib}
    @book{hald,
    title={Reference},
    author={Hald},
    year={1990},
}
@book{hacking,
    title={Reference},
    author={Hacking},
    year={1975},
    }
\end{filecontents}

\begin{document}
    \citep[p. 49; p.31]{hacking,hald}
\end{document}

The MWE however produces the citation typeset as

(Hacking 1975; Hald 1990, p. 49; p.31)

rather than

(Hacking 1975, p. 49; Hald 1990, p. 31)

Can I have the wanted typesetting using either the biblatex or the biblatex-chicago package?

    Please note that styles of the biblatex-chicago bundle should usually be loaded through the wrapper package biblatex-chicago and not via biblatex. Replace \usepackage[style=chicago-authordate,natbib=true,backend=biber]{biblatex} with \usepackage[authordate,backend=biber]{biblatex-chicago} – moewe Jan 23 at 13:21
  • \parencites was exactly what I was looking for. Thank you! I wasn't aware of the multiple cites functionality. – Rasmus Søgaard Christensen Jan 23 at 13:29
