Q. How do I cite a custom textbook in APA Style?


The APA Blog provides an entry on How to Cite Course Packs, Custom Textbooks, and Other Classroom Compendiums. Basically, the style experts state you should cite the individual sources that make up the custom course text, rather than the book as a whole.

However, please note that this information only serves as guidance. Please check with your Instructor to see if they have specific requirements or recommendations for citing the custom textbook.

For additional assistance with APA Style, you may contact the NCU Academic Success Center at asc@ncu.edu or on the Commons: https://vac.ncu.edu/writing-center-commons/
