Answer

EasyBib can help you cite a poem from your text book (see link below), here's how:

  1. Type in the ISBN of your text book (find inside the front of the book).
  2. If more than one book is listed, double check the details and click Select on the correct book.
  3. Next a form will pop up with all the book info and you have an opportunity to change anything if needed, but it should be correct.
  4. Use the pull down menu at the top of the form labeled Citing and select chapter or section.
  5. Under Chapter/Section title, type in the title of the poem.
  6. Under Pages, type in the page numbers.

You can use this same technique for citing just a portion of a book.
