How do I add citations (including photo/image credits) to my PowerPoint or Google Slides Presentation?


General guidelines for including citations in presentations using the MLA style:

  • Cite all of your sources using the MLA style, just as you would in a written paper. The last slide of your presentation serves as the Works Cited.
  • Images in presentations are treated like figures and have captions with source information underneath. 
  • Clip art generally does not require a citation.

General rules for including citations in presentations using the APA style: 

  • Use the same information on your title slide that you would have on a title page.
  • Include a references list as the last page of your presentation.
  • Include in-text citations for any source you used within your presentation using the standard APA format. 
  • If you are using stock images or clip art with a license that states "no attribution required" you do not need to provide a reference, in-text citation, or copyright attribution. 
  • If you are using an image that requires attribution, provide a copyright attribution in the figure note and a reference list entry for the image in the reference list.
