Q. How do I cite Project Gutenberg books?

Answer

MLA Style recommends citing a Project Gutenberg book as a page from a website:

 

Author last name, Author first name. “Title of Book.” Project Gutenberg, Publication/Updated date,

URL.

 

Chicago Style* recommends citing a Project Gutenberg book as follows:

 

N Author first name Author Last Name, Title of Book (Original Publication place, Original Publication

  Date; Project Gutenberg, Publication Date), chapter number, URL.

 

B Author last name, Author first name. Title of Book. Original Publication place, Original Publication 

Date; Project Gutenberg, Publication Date. URL.

 

*Chicago recommends using a Google Books/Hathitrust version over Project Gutenberg books as books found through Google Books or Hathitrust are considered more authoritative copies of the book and have page numbers that more accurately direct a reader to information.

 

APAStyle recommends citing a Project Gutenberg book as an eBook:

 

Author last name, Author initials. Title of book. Project Gutenberg, Publication date. URL.
