If there is no author, use the title of the source. Shorten the title to the first noun phrase or word. Keep in mind the in text citation is meant to lead the reader to the correct entry. When titles have similar beginnings, provide more words in the full title. For example, Faulkner's Novels of the South can be shortened to Faulkner's Novels and Under the Volcano can be shortened to Under.
If more than one author have the same last name, include all the author's first initials in all text citations:
If both authors have the same surname and first initial, provide the authors' full name:
If citing multiple works by the same author, include the short form of the source's title.
