APA Reference Entry for a Textbook

In the video below, Keri from the Writing Center explains how to create an APA-style Reference entry for a textbook or other book source.

Reference entries for book sources (like textbooks) will include:

  1. Author Last Name, First Initial.
  2. (Date).
  3. Title of book (ed.).
  4. Publisher.
