Complete style guide with formatting guidelines and works cited entry formats:
Check if your textbook has a single (or a couple of) authors, or if there is an editor and each chapter has its own author. If there is an editor, use the "Edited" option for the entire textbook. Use the "Chapter or Article in an Edited Book" format if you are only using specific chapters.
