Citation Styles: A Brief Guide to APA, MLA and Turabian

Sample Bibliography: MLA

The basic format for a book citation requires listing the author's name, the title of the book, the publisher's name, and the date of publication. Edited books, when cited in full, will list the editor's name instead of an author’s name.
