eTexts - electronic or digital textbooks - are used for most classes at Berkeley, and are included with your tuition and fees. They are under the eText link in the left-hand menu from your courses in Canvas, and open in a new tab called VitalSource Bookshelf. Click Read Now on the eText cover picture and the Table of Contents list should be on the left. In the top right of that left-hand menu, click on the 3 dots (...) for More Book Options, then click on Citation. It opens a box with the e-Text citation in it. It defaults to MLA format, so pick the citation style (APA or MLA) that your professor requires, then the reference will be formatted that way. See the screenshots below showing where to find this.
