The rules for MLA book citations are in the Cite MLA Style guide, linked below, under the In text Quotations & Citations tab.

An easy way to create MLA book citations is to find the books in the library's catalog, OneSearch, also linked below.  Once you find the book in the catalog, click on the item title and then click Citation (quotation mark icon) under Send To to generate citations in several formats.  Copy and paste the MLA citation into your paper.  If you do this, however, you will have to format the citation to have a hanging indent if it's longer than one line on your page.

If the book you want to cite is not held by COM Library, you can use a citation generator like Zoterobib (link below) to plug in the books ISBN or title and have the citation generated for you.
