Format quotes from a book with the name of the author(s), the title of the work, the publisher, the place of publication, the date of the publication, and the page number. Footnotes go on the bottom of the page that includes the quote from the book.
Number the footnote at the end of the quote. You can choose to use a superscript or brackets. List first and last names of the author(s) or editor(s), the title of the book chapter within quotation marks, the title of the book in italics, the edition number, the publisher, place of publication, date of publication, and the page in the book from which the material was drawn.
Make footnote numbers sequential throughout the paper. Do not start over at footnote 1 for each page. Instead, if you have three footnotes on the first page, start a new footnote on the second page with footnote 4. Use a double space between footnotes on the same page.
Avoid repeating footnote information if you use another quote from a source that was cited previously. Simply list the author and page number.
Use a feature of software, such as Microsoft Office Word 2007 instead of inserting footnotes manually.
Click on the References tab, go to the footnotes group icon, and click "insert footnote.” A small number will appear.
Look for a line to appear at the bottom of the page with a small number matching the text with the book quote. Your cursor will be next to the number and you can now type the information.
