Using External Sources in Lectures and Handouts

The purpose of citing sources is to give credit to the author for the images, ideas or quotations that you use, and to enable students to locate the original document or eResource if they would like to pursue additional information.

Examples of APA styles and formats include many of the most common types of sources used in academic teaching and research. For additional examples and more detailed information about APA citation style, refer to the Citation Guide handout above or the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association.
