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: 

  1. Select Books on the search box, type in your title and search.
  2. When reviewing results, make sure to match the edition you are using.
  3. When you find your match, click/tap on the title to go to the book page.
  4. Look for cite/export on the top right side, under the search box.
  5. 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.
