How do I cite a lab manual in MLA style?
If the lab manual has been published, cite it as you would any other book. Published titles will have a publisher listed on the title page and most likely will have an ISBN number.
For in-text citations include the author's name and page number (use the title, in quotes, and page number instead if no author is listed). For the works cited page, follow this format:
Lastname, Firstname. Title of Book. City of Publication: Publisher, Year of Publication. Medium of Publication.
If the lab manual was created by a staff member or department of the school, and is only available through the class, cite it as an unpublished work. The rules for in-text citations will be the same. If a department prepared the manual, use it for the name in the citation.
For the works cited page of an unpublished manual, follow this format:
Lastname, Firstname (or Department name). "Title". Lab handbook. School or organization associated with manual. Organization location. Manual date (use n.d. if no date is available). Medium of publication.
Science and Math Department. "Manual for PHYS 1402". Lab handbook. College of the Mainland. Texas City. 2014. Print.
