If it is a book that is from COM Library, you can grab a citation for your book from OneSearch. Just look for the quotation marks to get your citation.
If the book is not from COM Library, there is a trick that you can use for citing books APA style. If you go to Worldcat (link below)you'll find most books of the that have been published. Here's how:
- Select Books on the search box, type in your title and search.
- When reviewing results, make sure to match the edition you are using.
- When you find your match, click/tap on the title to go to the book page.
- Look for cite/export on the top right side, under the search box.
- Click/tap it and select APA to get your citation.
FYI, when you paste it in Word, you'd still need to format with a hanging indent, double, times new roman, 12 inch font. See the tips, below to see easy ways to create the hanging indent and more in Word.
