Have you ever found yourself pulling your hair out, trying to figure out how to properly cite the electronic media sources you used on the References page of your paper? Here’s the good news. The Leatherby Libraies has acquired the APA Style Guide to Electronic References, 6th edition, and it is available to view or print from the library website. It includes the basic information on how references are constructed; provides a DOI and URL flowchart to help illuminate how and when to use DOIs, URLs, and database information; and consists of a substantial section of various examples for electronic references. Here is how to access it:
- Begin at the Library’s Citation/Style Guides page
- Scroll down to locate the APA section and click on the link for “APA Style Guide to Electronic References, Sixth Edition” (the last link)
- You will be taken to the cataloging record of this document
- Click on “View or Print: APA Style Guide to Electronic References”
- You will be prompted to login with your full name and your Brandman student ID.
We also have a handy video tutorial to walk you through the process:
Please note that the APA Style Guide to Electronic References is a PDF document, and you may print copies only for personal use.
As always, Ask a Librarian if you need further assistance!
