In general, you cite an eBook just as you would the original printed book, but include also the database or website you retrieved the eBook from. When using licensed databases available through the library (netLibrary and Safari), simply list the name of the database. When using eBooks that are freely available on the web, give the full URL you retrieved the book from.
Here are some sample eBook citations in APA format (you'll need to modify them to conform to the citation style you're using):

Lodge, H.C. & Roosevelt, T. (1918). Hero tales from American history. New York: The Century Co. Retrieved from http://books.google.com/books?id=6XMAAAAAYAAJ&printsec=titlepage.
