Dear Erin,

I am not sure if you are asking how to cite an electronic book or a regular book.  If it is an electronic book, you would need to put the URL at the end of the citation.  Here are some examples of citing a chapter from a book:

Chapter or article from an anthology

Johnson, V. (1998). Pan-Africanism in print: The Boston Chronicle and the

        struggle for black liberation and advancement, 1930-50. In J. Danky &

        W. Wiegand (Eds.), Print culture in a diverse America (pp. 56-84).

        Urbana: University of Illinois Press.

Chapter or article reprinted in an anthology or reference book

 

Boardman, M. (2004). One flew over the cuckoo’s nest: Rhetoric and vision.  

        Contemporary Literary Criticism, 184, (pp. 218-224). New York: Gale.

        (Reprinted from Journal of Narrative Technique, 9(3), 171-183, 1979).

 

Note: Article titles are not generally italicized.  The above article title includes the title of a book (cuckoo) and only that portion of the article title is in italics.

 I hope this helps you cite this chapter.   If you have any questions, please resumit to us.
