Citing content from Gale's anthologies
ting content from an anthology can be a challenge. There are two types of content in Gale's anthologies. Original content written by Gale's editors and content that was previously printed in academic journals, magazines and books. MLA requires a different method of citation for each of these types of content. Additionally, MLA requires information about the online access if one uses an eBook rather than a print volume. Here are some guides to help with the four variations.
