Default What does "Book Section" mean in the Type of Source tab?

When setting up references for a bibliography the Type of Source has a
selection called "Book Section." What I am looking for is MLA style for an
anthology as it is set up in Word.

You would use "Book Section" when you are referring to a specific chapter or
other section of a book. It is often useful when a book has multiple authors
and you only want to site that one section.

If by anthology, you mean a book with selections from a variety of authors,
using "Book Section" will probably be appropriate.

Some information is right here for those who want to go for it. For you pendrago can be helping for educational reasons. It is something about Have you ever had to write an essay for you application? If there is someone who has first hand experience with it then kindly help people in this manner.

Yes, that's correct. The book section is for a book by several authors. In any case, if you have problems with the MLA style because sometimes you can get confused, at https://uk.edubirdie.com/literature-review-writing you can find a tool that helps with formatting. Cause I get confused with MLA style sometimes.
