If you go to the Purdue site (just Google Purdue Owl), there is an entire guide on APA format. I have forgotten how long it is, but it may be worth printing out for future reference. Just a suggestion.

Subject: Ref Question: APA Style Manual format

Hello everyone,

I need to ask for help from my esteemed colleagues who are much wiser than I.  I do not have access to an APA Style Manual and I don't have a lot of writing experience so I'm hoping someone can help me with two questions.  My patron has two references and needs to know the proper way to cite them.  I tried to find out online, hoping to find a "suggested citation" for these but I had no success.  The two references are:

1. Joint Commission Accreditation Manual for Hospitals 2010

2. CDC - Guideline for Environmental Infection Control in Health-Care Facilities, 2003 
Recommendations of CDC and the Healthcare Infection Control Practices Advisory Committee (HICPAC).
(Part II of this was originally published in MMWR 2003; 52 (No. RR-10): 1-48, but I couldn't find any reference to Part I)

His second question is "if one is citing different pages for the second reference is one to list each one separately with either the page number or the table?"

Can anyone help with these questions?  I would greatly appreciate it.  Thank you!
