      Explanation and Examples for MLA8: Citing a Book, a Reference Book, or a Multi-Volume Work

      1. Citation for a Book:

      1. Author.
      2. Title of source.
      3. Publisher,
      4. Publication date,
      5. Page numbers

      Begin the entry with the author’s last name, followed by a comma and the rest of the name, as presented in the work. End this element with a period.

      For entries in encyclopedias, dictionaries, and other reference works, cite the piece as you would any other work in a collection but do not include the publisher information.

      Just for Fun

      Do you like graphic novels?  Here's a graphic novel in ebook format that doesn't have to be checked out, as long as you set up your own personal account in Destiny.  It's not only easy, but also very useful.  Other advantages of having your own log-in include...

      • being greeted by name, when you log in
      • being able to renew your books online, from home.  We allow you to renew one time, giving you an extra two weeks to read your books.
      • being able to request a book from another school in Humble ISD.  Use this option only when we don't have the book you want in the Summer Creek Library.
      • being able to read ebooks from the Follet Shelf.

       

      Let's get Started!

      1. Click on Destiny Quest.
      2. Click on the log-in tab on the upper right side of your screen.
      3. Type in the same information as you use when you log into any computer at SCHS. Destiny is synced to this log-in.
      4. Notice that you are now greeted by name.
      5. Begin a search for the  graphic novel  ebook entitled Jason and the Golden Fleece.
