Answer

Use WorldCat. Leave the dafuelt search on College of the Mainland Library to search for books in our library; change it to Libraries Worldwide for books not in our library. This will get most books.

Here's how:

  1. Go to WorldCat and search for your book. (change to Libraries Worldwide if not from our library)
  2. From the results list, click on the title.
  3. Once on the item page, select Cite/Export (see below).
  4. A pop-up window will launch with APA, Chicago, Harvard, MLA and Turabian style citations (see below). 
  5. Click on your style to get the citation. 

Change It Tips:

1. Make sure it is formatted double spaced with a .5" hanging indent on your works cite page.

It Should Look Like: MLA

Isaacson, Walter. Steve Jobs. New York: Simon & Schuster, 2011. Print.

 

It Should Look Like: APA

Isaacson, W. (2011). Steve Jobs. New York: Simon & Schuster.
