How to cite a website, book, YouTube video and Picture in PowerPoint


Hi, this is Camille and welcome to this
short YouTube tutorial for how to cite a website, a book, a YouTube video,
and a picture in PowerPoint. Citing in PowerPoint isn’t
terribly different from
other mediums that you may be working in. However, there
are a few differences that
I would like to point out. First, let’s talk about how to
cite a website in PowerPoint. Here are some of the common elements
you may need to reference when citing a website, website or author name,
page name or article title, exact URL of website or
page date of publication. Here’s an example of how it might
look in APA and an MLA formatting. Now the first thing you want to do is
make sure that you have the full URL of the website that you are actually citing
in your presentation to make sure you don’t lose that exact
URL. In this situation, I have the full URL here of the exact
page that this content here is referring to and you’ll notice here I actually have
the name of the author of the website. So this could be anything from you know, a newyorktimes.com or whatever it is. It’s the name of it will
be the New York times here. And then this is the title of the actual
article that I’m citing that’s on the web and I’ve decided to not put
the full URL here in the uh, in the actual text body of
the text because that would
be a bit too much text to put all in one place. So I’ve just added a little superscript
one here that is referring back to this text that’s in the footer area so that
it’s clear that this is the exact source that I am citing from.
Another way to do that, it will be to just even remove further
information here and put more of it inside the source area down here
below in the footer part of the slide. Another example here, we
have a similar URL here. We have the full exact URL and we
also referenced the author of the, uh, of the report that we’re referencing. That’s an online report
that’s here on by booking.com. Now another and final way to site websites
in PowerPoint is to create a sources cited slide that you can have either at
the very end of your presentation or at the end of a section that actually lists
out the full details of the websites that you are referring to in your,
in the copy of your presentation. Now, if you want to learn more about how to
create this exact superscript one here, this in-text citation versus a not in
text citation or to create how to create a sources cited slide, check out this other YouTube video that
I’ve created on how to cite properly in PowerPoint onscreen now. Next, let’s look at how to cite
a book in PowerPoint. Here are some of the common elements that
you may need to reference when citing a book, author name, book title,
publication date and location, and publisher name. Here’s an example of how it might
look in APA and an MLA format. Now, for books, you may or may not have some extra details
that you need to make sure that you reference in your presentation for
your citations. So for example, in this situation I have the author’s
name and the date here listed as an in text citation that goes right after this
quote and I also have listed the author and the full name of the book along with
the publisher here in the footer area of the slide. You may or may not need this much
information depending on which type of citation you are actually or
citation style you’re actually using. In this next example, I simply have this author’s name and
the date listed after the quote here, and that’s enough. Again, you can decide if you want
to have a sources cited page. This may be in addition or in replacement
of some of these different styles. Again, you have to double check your citation
style and make sure that you’re following all those rules correctly. But this
would be another way to add the um, the, the citation of the sources that you
are referring to in your presentation. Next, let’s talk about how to cite
a YouTube video in PowerPoint. Here’s some of the common elements you
may need to reference when citing a YouTube video creator’s name or
screen name, video title, video URL, website name and publication date. Here’s an example of how it might
look in APA and MLA formatting. In your presentation, if you are
embedding a video from, from the web, from YouTube, from somebody else, you want to make sure that you include
all the relevant information for someone to be able to go back and find the video
that you were referencing and watch it and to also make sure you’re
giving credit back to the author. Some things you want to include
are the title of the video, the name of the author and the date
along with the URL. In this example, I actually have a sources cited slide
where I list out all the details of the video along with the URL where I
retrieved this video. So in other words, the actual URL of the
video on YouTube itself. And that is one way to make sure
that you are referencing everything. This might not be enough depending on the
citation style that you’re using or it may be enough because someone could look
up this information on YouTube and find this video. So it’s two
kinds of ways to do this, but you want to make sure that you are
including as much information as possible and that you are following the citation’s
style that you are being asked to follow. And finally let’s talk about how
to cite a picture in PowerPoint. Here are the common elements you may
need to reference when citing a Picture. Creator’s name, title of the picture,
date and location of publication, publisher or website, picture URL. Here’s an example of how it might
look in APA and MLA formatting. And citing a picture in PowerPoint
is very similar to all the other, the other types of content that you
are citing in PowerPoint. However it, you may also need to include a URL, especially if you have found that
picture online. So in this example, I’ve taken a picture here from somebody
on flicker and I’ve made sure that the image is copyright free. And so I’m
allowed to use this picture properly. That is the number one mistake
that people make. They find a web, a picture online and they assume that
it is usable in their presentation and unfortunately it is often not the case
so you want to make sure that you are checking out the copyright rules for
that particular image or that you are purchasing the image and therefore
getting a license to use it in your presentation. Now here I’ve put the photo credit to
Kevin Bueller and I have included the URL where I retrieved the image
so that someone could go
back in and find that this picture. You can also do a similar
example as I mentioned before, create a sources cited slide where you
list out the full details including the title of the photograph and
where you found it online. I hope you found this video helpful. Don’t forget to leave a
