How do I cite an academic catalog?

Note: This post relates to content in the eighth edition of the MLA Handbook. For up-to-date guidance, see the ninth edition of the MLA Handbook.

Cite an academic catalog the way you would cite a book with no author. Follow the MLA format template. Begin your entry with the title of the catalog and then list the publication details. If the catalog lists an issue number, include it in the Number element, as shown in the following example:

The University of Texas at Austin College of Liberal Arts, 1989-1991. No. 8906, University of Texas, Austin, May 1989.
