When to site a chapter of a book

If the book has editors, and the chapters have been contributed by different authors, then treat each chapter as a separate source of information.

If the resource does not have a publication date use n.d. (no date)

e.g. A. B. Smith, Engineering basics, 2nd ed., New York: Building Books, n.d.

Follow the format for Number of Authors, depending on which format is appropriate for your reference
