Q. How do I cite my lecture notes?


See also information on citing Course Materials in the APA Guide.

Important Note: This format would be used if you were citing a set of notes and/or documents from a recorded lecture (e.g. PDF, Excel, Word document, or PowerPoint slides provided by your instructor) that can be accessed again later.
Tip: Cite information from your own personal notes from a lecture as personal communication and refer to it only in the body of your essay. Follow the format examples for a personal communication in the APA Guide.
