Title of Container,

Only include the title of the container if your source is a part of a larger whole. This larger whole is considered the container that holds your source. The title of the container is italicized with the major words capitalized and is followed by a comma.

Examples:

Your source is an article within a journal: The title of the container = the title of the journal.

Your source is a web page found on a website: The title of the container = the title of the website.

Your source is an essay from a book: The title of the container = the title of the book.

For sources that stand on their own and therefore are self-contained (e.g. book, film, or play), the title of the container is omitted.

Multiple Containers

Your source may be in a container that is enclosed by a larger container (container 2).
