How do I cite something that doesn't have page or paragraph numbers in APA Style?

The intention behind providing a page or paragraph number in an in-text citation is to direct your reader to the specific location within a resource of the quoted or paraphrased text (e.g., (Lastname, year, p. X). If you are working with a source that doesn't have page or paragraph numbers, consider how you can direct your reader via your in-text citation to the location of the information within the resource, such as providing a chapter title and section heading or a table number. Please see "How to Cite Part of a Work" from the APA Style Blog for some suggestions. If you're working with an ebook, please see "How do I reference a book/ebook in APA style?" or "How do I reference a chapter of an edited book/ebook in APA style?" for more information and examples.
