Citing Knovel eBooks

The Knovel database provides citation help for the ebooks in its collections.

Go to the book you intend to cite. Just below the cover image, you'll see a "Citation" button. When you click this, a generic citation will display in a window. You could copy and paste this generic citation into a word document and edit it. If you use RefWorks, insert the specific page numbers you're citing, click "Export," and select RefWorks. The citation with the page numbers will be added to your RefWorks database which can generate citations in hundreds of styles, including APA, AMA, CSE, Harvard, MLA, Turabian, and more.

Plough Library subscribes to three Knovel collections: Biochemistry, Biology and Biotechnology; Chemistry and Chemical Engineering; and General Engineering and Project Administration. CBU students, faculty, and staff can set up personal registrations within Plough Library's RefWorks subscription.
