How do I cite an e-book on a device like a Kindle, Nook, or iPad?

With more schools using e-book readers, we received questions about citing e-books in NoodleTools, “How do I cite an e-book on a device like a Kindle, Nook, or iPad?” To answer this question, we created Knowledge Base articles for APA and MLA formats:

(APA 6th ed.) How do I cite an e-book on a device like a Kindle, Nook, or iPad?

(MLA 7th ed.) How do I cite an e-book on a device like a Kindle, Nook, or iPad?

For Chicago format,  according to Chicago Manual of Style Online 14.166 an e-book citation should end with the name of the e-reader (e.g., Kindle edition) while the footnote or endnote could follow that with the chapter title or number (e.g., chap.2), a subheading or even a unique phrase that could be found by searching (Chicago Manual Q&A section).

We have a proven track record across thousands of schools and universities.
