MLA 9th Edition Style Guide: Presentations


Citations are included in PowerPoint (or Prezi or other format) presentations in the same way that they are included in a paper. Include a works-cited-slide as the last slide and follow paper guidelines for including images and in-text citations. (MLA 6.79)

When giving your presentation, verbal citations are the speech equivalent of the in-text citations you use in a paper. MLA specifies that the author, title, and date of the source should be included (MLA 6.82). Valencia's Speech Department recommends also including an explanation of the expertise of the source. Watch the following video from Valencia's Speech Department to find out how to do this.
