Reference List: Books // Purdue Writing LabNote : All citations should be double spaced and have a hanging indent in a Reference List. A "hanging indent" means that each subsequent line after the first line of your citation should be indented by 0. A print book means it's printed on paper. If you checked the book out of a library or bought it from a bookstore, it's print. An author won't necessarily be a person's name. It may be an organization or company, for example Health Canada.

The APA style has two inseparable components: in-text citation and reference list. In-text citation, by its name, is included within the body of a document. On the other hand, the reference list is found at the end of the document with the complete information about the source. The in-text citation is meant to direct the readers to the right source in the reference list. To start with, I have here a list of basic information that you need to look for in citing a book and the location of each element. Now that you are familiar with the elements you have to include in the reference, we will continue with the APA book citation format. Calfee, R.
