How do you cite a reference from another book?

Your in-text citation should include both authors: the author(s) of the original source and the author(s) of the secondary source. For example: (Habermehl, 1985, as cited in Kersten, 1987). In your reference list you should provide the details of the secondary source (the source you read).

How do you do a secondary reference?

The author’s surname and year of publication for the secondary source is presented first in an in-text reference, followed by the word ‘cited’, to show that it is cited in another source. The same information is then given for the source which you have read, known as the original source.

How do you cite another essay?

The guidelines for citing an essay in MLA format are similar to those for citing a chapter in a book. Include the author of the essay, the title of the essay, the name of the collection if the essay belongs to one, the editor of the collection or other contributors, the publication information, and the page number(s).
