How do I cite sources in PowerPoint?

I need to cite my sources in APA style in my PowerPoint presentation. Do you have some tips for me?

You'll need to cite your sources both in the "text" of your presentation as well as in a "references" slide at the end.

Your citations will look similar to citations you would include if you were writing a paper.

Every time you quote or paraphrase (or use an image) from a source in your presentation, you'll need an "in text" citation. This will include all the same things an in text citation includes in a paper: Author's last name, year, and page number.

These in text citations will correspond to a citation you'll include in the references. This references slide will look similar to the references page for a paper.

If you have more questions about this, please contact your local campus librarian. We're happy to help. :)
