To cite a book, identify the following from the book:
- The author
- The book title
- City of Publication
- Year of Publication
- Format (Print)
Here's the full citation:
- Begin with the author's name. Put the last name first, followed by the author's first
name and ending with a period. The book I'll be using as my example is written by Francisco Jiménez:
- Next comes the title of the book. Make sure you italicize the title and end it with a period:
Note: Always indent after the first line of your citation.
- Then add the city of publication, followed by a colon. The city of publication and the publisher information
can be found on the title page of the book. For city names, include state/province information unless the city
is a large metropolitan area (New York, London, Boston). If multiple cities are listed, just include one.
- List the name of the publisher, followed by a comma:
- The final part of your citation is the year of publication and the
format (print). End your citation with a period.
