Q. How do you cite a Power Point Presentation from a website?


Thank you for the question about citing a PowerPoint presentation from a website, which is a bit different than citing a PowerPoint presentation from a class lecture. 

Baker College has an APA Help guide that gives examples.

To cite a PowerPoint from a class:

  • On the APA Help guide, click the tab that says References & In-text Citation Examples.  
  • Click the drop box under Other, choose Course Documents, Class Discussions, Lectures.
  • Scroll down to the PowerPoint example.

To cite a PowerPoint from a website:

  • From the APA Help guide, choose Websites. 
  • If the PowerPoint has an author, then choose the example with author.
  • If the slides do not have an author, then choose organization as author.
  • Example of organization as author: Society for Human Resource Management


Society for Human Resource Management. (2018, December 16). Title of the presentation in italics [PowerPoint slides]. Retrieved from website address.

And then if you quote a slide, it would look like this:

"Someone said something really interesting in this presentation." (Society for Human Resource Management, 2018, slide 21).
