How do I cite my sources in a digital assignment?
Last Updated: Feb 27, 2023 Views: 130

Digital assignments can come in a variety of formats, and may include:

  • PowerPoint or slide presentations
  • Videos
  • Websites or blogs
  • A digital object that you have created in lieu of a traditional text-based research paper, etc.

Neither MLA nor APA has official rules on how to cite your sources in digital assignments, but copyright law states that you must always list your sources and credit authors whenever you use their work.

So how do you cite in a digital assignment? If no guidelines have been provided by your instructor, Seneca Libraries has developed guidelines for citing sources in a digital assignment. You should feel safe when using these guidelines to cite your sources in any digital assignments you submit while studying at Seneca.

When in doubt, check your assignment outline and confirm with your instructor their preferred method.
