    Citing an ebook from a website

    (like Project Gutenberg or Archive.org)

    Citing an ebook that you access directly from a website is a little different than citing an ebook from an app/software. Here are the steps for citing an ebook that you accessed directly on a website, usually in the form of a PDF or a hypertext version.

    1. Click sources
    2. Click new source
    3. Click website
    4. Click book


    1. First you need to fill out as many boxes in the "website" section as you can.
      1. If you cannot answer any of the boxes information, leave that box blank.
      2. You can see in my example below that I left two boxes blank. The DOI box, and the Publisher box.
      3. That is because I was not able to locate that info on the website my ebook was on.
      4. That is okay. It is not unusual to occassionally need to leave some boxes blank.
    2. Second you need to import your book (see instructions for this below)


    Import your book by ISBN or author/title

    1. Click the dropdown next to ISBN 
    2. Switch it to say "title."
    3. Type your title into the white box next to "title"
    4. Click "search"


    1. Look at the results and find a match
    2. Make sure the author AND title match!
    3. Click the match to highlight it blue
    4. Click "import selected source"
    5. If there are no matches, you can try adding the author's name to the search and clicking "search again"


    1. Click continue
    2. Click Save
    3. You are now finished citing this ebook into noodletools
