The correct format is:

Author last name, Initials. (Year of publication). Title of eBook. Retrieved from

[Note the reference is in Times New Roman 12 point font, double spaced with a hanging indent. For more information about formatting the reference page, see]


Note the web link is neither blue nor underlined; it should be formatted the same as the rest of the reference. For the web link, do not copy and paste the link that is in your browser while you are reading the eBook. That link will not work for readers who aren’t Concordia students or faculty. Instead, use the public web site for the publishing company who produced the eBook. This means you’ll need to determine the publisher when looking at the eBook. This information can be found in two places; see the example below.


1. In the item record in CU Library’s catalog

The publisher will be listed in the eBook’s catalog entry.



2. On the title page of the eBook itself



After you locate the publisher name, then use Google to find the publisher’s webpage and get the exact web address.




For this eBook, the entry would read:

Zuber-Skerritt, O. (2013). Lifelong action learning for community development: Learning and

development for a better world. Retrieved from
