Citing Electronic Books (Ebooks) from Gateway Library’s Catalog or Databases

 MLA Style (2009 revision)

Give the print publication information in regular book format; then the name of the library’s online catalog or the database you used in italics; then the medium of publication, which is Web, and the date of access, in day-month-year format.

For example, for the online catalog:

Sharma, S. K.  Commercial Economics.  Jaipur:  ABD Publishers, 2010.  Gateway Library Online
Catalog.  Web.  7 March 2011.

OR, where ebrary is the database:

Sharma, S. K. Commercial Economics.  Jaipur:  ABD Publishers, 2010.  ebrary.  Web.  7 March  2010.
