Citing Sources

Some of you may choose to make a video or an audio recording for your assignment. You should still create and provide a full reference list along with your video or recording, written in the correct citation style. However, in-text citations are a little different for oral formats than written papers. To orally cite something, you will need to give sufficient information about the source to your audience. Typically, this is the author, title, and date of a source. By including this information, you allow your listeners to find your original sources, as well as allow them to hear that your sources are recent and are credible.
