About Citing Books

When you're finding books for your research, make note of the author name(s), book title, edition, publication date, publisher, place of publication, and the pages you've referenced.

For each type of source in this guide, both the general form and a specific example will be provided.

The following format will be used:

In-Text Citation- entry that appears in the body of your paper.

Reference List- entry that appears at the end of your paper.

 

Corporate Author

The general format and example below refers to a book with a corporate author.
 
If there is no personal author, an organization such as a university, association, corporation, or governmental body may serve as an author.
A shortened form of the name of the organization may be used for the in-text citation, using the initial letter of each part of the name or a readily recognizable abbreviation. The abbreviation will appear as the first element in the end reference, within square brackets.

The Online Writing Lab at Purdue University offers an online resource which can be used in some cases.  However, it does not include everything required for citing sources in one place.

The MLA Style does not cover Canadian government sources, and has only a limited section on American government resources.

Please refer to the staff at the Library Reference Desk for clarification when citing Canadian government sources.

Librarians at SFU have created what is considered the definitive resource for use when citing Canadian Government documents and online resources in MLA Style.
