How to Cite an eBook

When citing eBooks, you should following the guidelines for citing nonperiodical web publications, found in section 5.6.2c (pp. 197-189) of the MLA Handbook.

The MLA Handbook states in section 5.6.1 (pg. 182) that you need not provide the URL for any online sources unless there is no other way to direct the reader to the source. Since articles in library databases can be found by searching  for titles and authors' names, including the URL is not necessary.


Author's Last Name, First Name. Title of Book. Place of publication: Publisher, copyright date. Source of eBook. Web. Date of Access.
